Jetpack Compose Custom Switch Button with Icon

jetpack compose custom switch button

This is a custom switch button made with Android Jetpack Compose. It contains an icon on the thumb. In the ON state, it shows the Done icon and the OFF state contains the Close icon. You can download the source code for free below.

The switch button is made with several APIs like Box, Icon, Text, etc… It shows the state of the switch using the Text composable. I have added animation to the thumb. When you tap on it, the thumb moves left to right (or right to left) with a nice animation. It also changes the icon on the thumb according to the state.

The Jetpack Compose custom switch button composable takes multiple parameters. The width and height are for the Box size. The checked and unchecked colors represent the ON and OFF states. I set the thumb size to 24 dp, but you can play around with it. Change the values according to your requirements.

If you want to use this composable, you should download the latest version of Android Studio. Jetpack Compose doesn’t work in the older versions.
