Make Transparent button in android xml.

Code for MainActivity.java file.

package com.android_examples.com.buttonwithoutbackground;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

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

Code for activity_main.xml layout file.

 <RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
 xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
 android:layout_width="match_parent"
 android:layout_height="match_parent"
 android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
 android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
 android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
 android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
 tools:context="com.android_examples.com.buttonwithoutbackground.MainActivity" >

 <Button
 android:id="@+id/button1"
 android:layout_width="wrap_content"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
 android:layout_centerVertical="true"
 android:background="?android:attr/selectableItemBackground"
 android:text="Button Without Background" />
 
</RelativeLayout>

Note: When you trying to add selectableItemBackground then it will show a error message ” ?android:attr/selectableItemBackground requires API level 11(current min is 8) ” so just change minimum api 8 to 11 in AndroidManifest.xml file. If you don’t know how to change api level then read my this post it will help you.
