Customize view elements

In the previous guide, we added the Map Fragment to your app's view. This guide will cover customization of the fragment, customization such as choosing your own hero marker, show/hide UI elements.

UI components

1. Order Status Toolbar

By default, the Order Status Toolbar is enabled and it displays the order status and sub-status as the title and subtitle respectively.

Customizing Order Status Toolbar

To customize Order Status Toolbar, add a resource in your styles.xml file with the name HTOrderStatusToolbarTheme as shown below. You can then customize the style to something that goes well with your overall app theme.

 <!-- Customize HyperTrack Styles to support our AppTheme -->
<style name="HTOrderStatusToolbarTheme" parent="ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.ActionBar">
  <item name="android:background">@color/colorPrimary</item>
  <item name="colorControlNormal">@color/white</item>
  <item name="android:textColorPrimary">@color/white</item>
  <item name="titleTextColor">@color/white</item>
  <item name="subtitleTextColor">@color/white</item>

Hide/Show Order Status Toolbar

You can toggle Order Status Toolbar's visibility by overriding the method showOrderStatusToolbar.

public boolean showOrderStatusToolbar(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment) {
  return false;

2. Hero markers

By default, following are the Hero Markers for Vehicle Types Bike, Car, Van & Walk respectively.

Hero markers

Choosing your own Hero Marker icon

To use your own hero marker icon, add drawable resources in your application with the same name as following.

  • ic_ht_hero_marker_bike.png
  • ic_ht_hero_marker_car.png
  • ic_ht_hero_marker_van.png
  • ic_ht_hero_marker_walk.png

Choosing a different Hero Marker icon or view per action

To use different hero marker for each action, override getHeroMarkerIconForActionID method in order to set an icon as hero marker or getHeroMarkerViewForActionID method in order to set a view as hero marker.

public int getHeroMarkerIconForActionID(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment, String actionID) {
  return R.drawable.ic_hero_marker;
public View getHeroMarkerViewForActionID(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment, String actionID) {
  return null;

[warning] Customizating Hero Marker programatically

getHeroMarkerViewForActionID method's implementation will override the one specified in getHeroMarkerIconForActionID.

Additional Customizations for Hero Marker

  • You can disable/enable rotation of hero marker by overwriting rotateHeroMarker method.
  • You can set the anchor (with respect to lat/lng position) by overwriting getHeroMarkerAnchorValues method.
public boolean rotateHeroMarker(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment, String actionID) {
  return true;

public float[] getHeroMarkerAnchorValues(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment, String actionID) {
  return new float[]{0.5f, 0.5f};

4. Expected Place marker

By default, Expected Place Marker is a custom view with ETA text as a part of this view.

Customizing Expected Place Marker Background Image (by adding resources)

To customize the background image of this view, add a drawable resource in your application with the name ic_ht_expected_place_marker.

Customizing Expected Place Marker Background Image (programatically)

To customize the background image of this view, override getExpectedPlaceMarkerIconForActionID method of HyperTrackMapAdapter.

public int getExpectedPlaceMarkerIconForActionID(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment, String actionID) {
  return R.drawable.ic_ht_expected_place_marker;

Customizing Expected Place Marker View

To add a different view for the Expected Place Marker, override the getExpectedPlaceMarkerViewForActionID method. The view that is provided in this method would replace the expected place marker's default view.

Customize expected place markers

public View getExpectedPlaceMarkerViewForActionID(HyperTrackMapFragment hyperTrackMapFragment, String actionID) {
  return ((LayoutInflater) mContext.getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE)).inflate(R.layout.ht_custom_marker_layout, null);

  return CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngZoom(INITIAL_MAP_LATLNG, INITIAL_MAP_ZOOM);
