set image button background image for different state

I want that if I pressed image button then image should change from normal to pressed until I press other button but it doesn’t happen.

I have set normal image in the imagebutton background and I am trying to change image(pressed) fromonclick method, but it doesn’t change.

create an xml in your drawable like this

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <selector xmlns:android="">
        android:drawable="@drawable/btn_sendemail_disable" />
        android:drawable="@drawable/btn_send_email_click" />
        android:drawable="@drawable/btn_sendemail_roll" />
        android:drawable="@drawable/btn_sendemail" />

how colors work in android.

I have this color set as background of my LinearLayout and I get a background gray with some transparency.

<gradient android:startColor="#b4555555" android:endColor="#b4555555"
 android:angle="270.0" />

If I remove the last two chars (55) I get a solid color, loosing the transparency.

Android uses Hex ARGB values, which are formatted as #AARRGGBB. That first pair of letters, the AA, represent the Alpha Channel. You must convert your decimal opacity values to a Hexdecimal value. Here are the steps:

Alpha Hex Value Process

  1. Take your opacity as a decimal value and multiply it by 255. So, if you have a block that is 50% opaque the decimal value would be .5. For example: .5 x 255 = 127.5
  2. The fraction won’t convert to hex, so you must round your number up or down to the nearest whole number. For example: 127.5 rounds up to 128; 55.25 rounds down to 55.
  3. Enter your decimal value in a decimal to hexadecimal converter, like this, and convert your values
  4. If you only get back a single value, prefix it with a zero. For example, if you’re trying to get 5% opacity and your going through this process you’ll end up with the hex value of D. Add a zero in front of it so it appears as 0D.

Here’s a correct table of percentages to hex values. E.g. for 50% white you’d use #80FFFFFF.

  • 100% — FF
  • 95% — F2
  • 90% — E6
  • 85% — D9
  • 80% — CC
  • 75% — BF
  • 70% — B3
  • 65% — A6
  • 60% — 99
  • 55% — 8C
  • 50% — 80
  • 45% — 73
  • 40% — 66
  • 35% — 59
  • 30% — 4D
  • 25% — 40
  • 20% — 33
  • 15% — 26
  • 10% — 1A
  • 5% — 0D
  • 0% — 00
