How to show shadow in toolbar below API 21


In this blog,
I have shown you how to make a drop shadow in the toolbar below API 21.


In this example, I have created a custom background XML(drop shadow) and applied it inside the FrameLayout.
And this will give a drop shadow effect on the toolbar.






Note: Don’t forget to hide your view if the device you are running is >= to Lollipop.

if not you’ll end up with two shadows.

    When I think in getting solutions for my Ecommerce Platform, I think of Webkul. They have been such a blessing in our business. We have spent thousands of dollars in support and modules from them. We love their support team. They work very closely with us, and they always go the extra mile when we need help.
