activity_main.xml

In the layout, create an EditText by adding icons to the ” drawableStart ” and ” drawableEnd “.

The complete code for activity_main.xml is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">

    <EditText
        android:id="@+id/editText1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:drawableStart="@drawable/ic_baseline_remove_circle_24"
        android:drawableEnd="@drawable/ic_baseline_add_circle_24"
        android:ems="10"
        android:gravity="center_horizontal"
        android:inputType="textPersonName"
        android:text="1"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

MainActivity

In MainActivity add “ OnTouchListener ” as follows

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @SuppressLint("ClickableViewAccessibility")
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        EditText myText = findViewById(R.id.editText1);
        myText.setOnTouchListener((view, motionEvent) -> {
            final int DRAWABLE_LEFT = 0;
            final int DRAWABLE_TOP = 1;
            final int DRAWABLE_RIGHT = 2;
            final int DRAWABLE_BOTTOM = 3;

            if (motionEvent.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_UP) {
                if (motionEvent.getRawX() >= (myText.getRight() - myText.getCompoundDrawables()[DRAWABLE_RIGHT].getBounds().width())) {
                    Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "You clicked on Add Button", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                    return true;
                }
                if (motionEvent.getRawX() >= myText.getCompoundDrawables()[DRAWABLE_LEFT].getBounds().width()) {
                    Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "You clicked on Remove Button", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                    return true;
                }
            }
            return false;
        });
    }
