Android Question

android.graphics.drawable.ColorDrawable cannot be cast to android.support.v7.widget.RoundRectDrawableWithShadow

I tried to use CardView in my Application which worked pretty good within my xml Layout. Since I want to generate them in my code and not via xml I tried to set the radius with CardView.setRadius()-Method as suggested by Android Developers (https://developer.android.com/preview/material/ui-widgets.html#cardview).

This does not work at all! I hope someone can help me, with my problem or got a nice workaround with xml layouts.

This is my code:

int height = (int) TypedValue.applyDimension(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_DIP, 100, getResources().getDisplayMetrics());
float radius = (int) TypedValue.applyDimension(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_DIP, 4, getResources().getDisplayMetrics());

for (String color : colors) {
CardView card = new CardView(getActivity());
TextView text = new TextView(getActivity());
card.setBackgroundColor(Color.parseColor("#"+color));
card.setLayoutParams(new ViewGroup.LayoutParams(
ViewGroup.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT, height));
card.setRadius(radius); //Error!!
text.setText(args.get(colors.indexOf(color)) + " - #" + color);
card.addView(text);
group.addView(card);
}


This is my Log:

UPDATE:
I use the new Lollipop SDK now with Appcompat version 21. Now It does not work at all even, when I try it without setRadius().

Update 2:
I guess this is a bug by google. So I pointed it out for them: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=77843

Answer

I get this error when calling setBackgroundColor() method, which is defined in View class.

cardView.setBackgroundColor(Color.parseColor("#ffffcc"));

Instead setCardBackgroundColor() method should be called, which is specific to CardViews and defined within CardView class.

This code setting both background colour and the corner radius works for me:

cardView.setCardBackgroundColor(Color.parseColor("#ffffcc"));
cardView.setRadius(50);
