I believe the answer is yes as I can see this answer for react here, but I don't know how to do it in Kotlin/Java.
The only to options I see are
setBackgroundColor which both require a color resource. How can I use gradient for the background?
chip.setBackgroundResource(R.drawable.gradient_background)but it just makes the background gray
It is not possible to set a background to Chip rather you can set the rounded corners or colors to it. You can also give a border color.
According to the documentation,
All attributes from Chip are supported. Do not use the android:background attribute. It will be ignored because Chip manages its own background Drawable. Also do not use the android:drawableStart and android:drawableEnd attributes.
Hence if you are looking something to give corners or a chip with a different border color I would suggest you to try this,
Chip chip = new Chip(Activity.this); chip.setText("Holiday"); chip.setCloseIcon(ResourcesCompat.getDrawable(getResources(), R.drawable.close_chip, null)); chip.setCloseIconTint(ColorStateList.valueOf(Color.parseColor("#aa99bc"))); chip.setPadding(5, 5, 5, 5); chip.setCloseIconVisible(true);chip.setTextAppearanceResource(R.style.ChipTextStyle); chip.setChipStrokeColorResource(R.color.chip_border_color); chip.setChipStrokeWidth(1); chip.setChipCornerRadius(30); chip.setChipBackgroundColorResource(R.color.chip_background);
