Android – Shape Drawable Size not working

androiddrawableshapedrawablexml-layout

I have a very simple shape that I want to set the width of:

<shape android:shape="rectangle">
    <solid android:color="@color/orange"/>
    <size android:width="2dp"/>
</shape>

However, when I assign this to the background of a EditText it just shows an orange background instead of a rectangle of width 2dp. Why isn't setting the size working? I want to create a transparent drawable with a orange rectangle on the left side. I also have this wrapped in a selector:

<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:state_focused="true">
        <shape android:shape="rectangle">
            <solid android:color="@color/orange"/>
            <size android:width="2dp" android:height="6dp"/>
        </shape>
    </item>
    <item>
        <shape android:shape="rectangle">
            <solid android:color="@android:color/transparent"/>
        </shape>
    </item>
</selector>

I've tried adding height just to see if it would change the size. It doesn't. It's like its completely ignoring the size. WTF?

Best Solution

For me, setting the gravity of the item to "center" solved the issue. For example:

<item android:id="@android:id/progress" android:gravity="center">
    <clip>
        <shape>
            <size android:height="2dp"/>
            <solid android:color="@color/my_color"/>
        </shape>
    </clip>
</item>
