# Overview

Android iOS
Android iOS

Use the Titanium.UI.createPicker method or Alloy <Picker> element to create a picker control.

On Android, the useSpinner property must be enabled to support multiple columns. By default, the spinner is automatically sized to fit its content and can overflow to additional spinner rows. The size of the picker can be adjusted with the width and height properties, but may omit picker columns or cut off picker rows if the size is set too small. This property is deprecated. Please use the default Android native "dropdown" style by not setting useSpinner to true.

On iOS, the height property is only available in iOS 9 and later. By default, the size of the picker, including its background, is fixed at the same height as the iPhone keyboard to respect the iOS Human Interface Guidelines (opens new window). The default width on iOS is 320px and the height is 228px. The contents of the picker are sized to fit the picker, which may cut off text in the picker rows. Adding views to picker rows is also supported on iOS.

On iPad, Apple recommends using a picker only in a popover. Since the size of the picker cannot be adjusted, it is not suitable for the main screen.

Note: you can only set the Titanium.UI.Picker.columns property for the plain picker. If you set the Titanium.UI.Picker.type property to anything else except Titanium.UI.PICKER_TYPE_PLAIN, you cannot modify the picker's columns.

# Examples

# Multi-Column Picker using Alloy XML Markup

Creates a picker with two columns. You can optionally use Column and Row as shorthand notation for PickerColumn and PickerRow, respectively.

app/views/index.xml:

<Alloy>
    <Window id="win" backgroundColor="white" layout="vertical" exitOnClose="true">
        <Picker id="picker" top="50" selectionIndicator="true" useSpinner="true">
            <PickerColumn id="column1">
                <PickerRow title="Bananas"/>
                <PickerRow title="Strawberries"/>
                <PickerRow title="Mangos"/>
                <PickerRow title="Grapes"/>
            </PickerColumn>
            <!-- Picker shorthand notation -->
            <Column id="column2">
                <Row title="red"/>
                <Row title="green"/>
                <Row title="blue"/>
                <Row title="orange"/>
            </Column>
        </Picker>
    </Window>
</Alloy>

app/controllers/index.js:

$.win.open();

# Date Picker using Alloy XML Markup

Creates a date picker, then monitors the change event to see when the user updates the picker.

For the date string, use string values accepted by the moment.js constructor in the XML and TSS files. If you are defining dates in the controller code, use a JavaScript Date object.

app/views/index.xml:

<Alloy>

Availability
3.0.0
3.0.0
9.2.0
accessibilityHidden :Boolean

Whether the view should be "hidden" from (i.e., ignored by) the accessibility service.

On iOS this is a direct analog of the accessibilityElementsHidden property defined in the UIAccessibility Protocol.

Briefly describes what performing an action (such as a click) on the view will do.

On iOS this is a direct analog of the accessibilityHint property defined in the UIAccessibility Protocol. On Android, it is concatenated together with accessibilityLabel and accessibilityValue in the order: accessibilityLabel, accessibilityValue, accessibilityHint. The concatenated value is then passed as the argument to the native View.setContentDescription method.

Default: null

borderRadius :Number | String | Array<Number> | Array<String>

Radius for the rounded corners of the view's border.

Each corner is rounded using an arc of a circle. Values for each corner can be specified. For example, '20px 20px' will set both left and right corners to 20px. Specifying '20px 20px 20px 20px' will set top-left, top-right, bottom-right and bottom-left corners in that order.

If you have issues with dark artifacts on Android you can try to disable Hardware acceleration by setting a backgroundColor with a small amount of transparency: backgroundColor:"rgba(255,255,255,254)".

Some proxies (most commonly views) have a relationship to other proxies, often established by the add() method. For example, for a button added to a window, a click event on the button would bubble up to the window. Other common parents are table sections to their rows, table views to their sections, and scrollable views to their views. Set this property to false to disable the bubbling to the proxy's parent.

Default: true

  • SIZE. The view should size itself to fit its contents.
  • FILL. The view should size itself to fill its parent.

This is an input property for specifying the view's height dimension. To determine the view's size once rendered, use the rect or size properties.

This API can be assigned the following constants:

# hiddenBehavior

size :Dimension

The size of the view in system units.

Although property returns a Dimension dictionary, only the width and height properties are valid. The position properties--x and y--are always 0.

To find the position and size of the view, use the rect property instead.
