How to Remove TextField Padding in Android using Jetpack Compose?
In Android Jetpack Compose, a TextField is used to take input from the user in the form of text. TextField when in focus or when clicked invokes a soft keyboard. In general, TextField is highly attributed for a better feel and appearance. However, we can use a pre-developed TextField, named BasicTextField, which has no attributes like that of a regular TextField.
So in this article, we will show you how you could implement a BasicTextField that has no padding around it in Android using Jetpack Compose. Follow the below steps once the IDE is ready.
Step by Step Implementation
Step 1: Create a New Project in Android Studio
To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. While choosing the template, select Empty Compose Activity. If you do not find this template, try upgrading the Android Studio to the latest version. We demonstrated the application in Kotlin, so make sure you select Kotlin as the primary language while creating a New Project.
Step 2: Working with the MainActivity.kt file
Go to the MainActivity.kt file and refer to the following code. Below is the code for the MainActivity.kt file. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.
In the output, you can see two TextFields. We have entered “hello geek” in both the TextFields. The first one is the Regular TextField which has padding all around it. In the second one, you will see no padding at all.
