Android ImageButton with a selected state?

This works for me:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <!-- NOTE: order is important (the first matching state(s) is what is rendered) -->
    <item 
        android:state_selected="true" 
        android:drawable="@drawable/info_icon_solid_with_shadow" />
    <item 
        android:drawable="@drawable/info_icon_outline_with_shadow" />
 </selector>

And then in java:

//assign the image in code (or you can do this in your layout xml with the src attribute)
imageButton.setImageDrawable(getBaseContext().getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable....));

//set the click listener
imageButton.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

    public void onClick(View button) {
        //Set the button's appearance
        button.setSelected(!button.isSelected());

        if (button.isSelected()) {
            //Handle selected state change
        } else {
            //Handle de-select state change
        }

    }

});

For smooth transition you can also mention animation time:

<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:exitFadeDuration="@android:integer/config_mediumAnimTime">

ToggleImageButton which implements Checkable interface and supports OnCheckedChangeListener and android:checked xml attribute:

public class ToggleImageButton extends ImageButton implements Checkable {
    private OnCheckedChangeListener onCheckedChangeListener;

    public ToggleImageButton(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }

    public ToggleImageButton(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
        setChecked(attrs);
    }

    public ToggleImageButton(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) {
        super(context, attrs, defStyle);
        setChecked(attrs);
    }

    private void setChecked(AttributeSet attrs) {
        TypedArray a = getContext().obtainStyledAttributes(attrs, R.styleable.ToggleImageButton);
        setChecked(a.getBoolean(R.styleable.ToggleImageButton_android_checked, false));
        a.recycle();
    }

    @Override
    public boolean isChecked() {
        return isSelected();
    }

    @Override
    public void setChecked(boolean checked) {
        setSelected(checked);

        if (onCheckedChangeListener != null) {
            onCheckedChangeListener.onCheckedChanged(this, checked);
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void toggle() {
        setChecked(!isChecked());
    }

    @Override
    public boolean performClick() {
        toggle();
        return super.performClick();
    }

    public OnCheckedChangeListener getOnCheckedChangeListener() {
        return onCheckedChangeListener;
    }

    public void setOnCheckedChangeListener(OnCheckedChangeListener onCheckedChangeListener) {
        this.onCheckedChangeListener = onCheckedChangeListener;
    }

    public static interface OnCheckedChangeListener {
        public void onCheckedChanged(ToggleImageButton buttonView, boolean isChecked);
    }
}

res/values/attrs.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <declare-styleable name="ToggleImageButton">
        <attr name="android:checked" />
    </declare-styleable>
</resources>

The best way to do this without more images :

public static void buttonEffect(View button){
    button.setOnTouchListener(new OnTouchListener() {

        public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
            switch (event.getAction()) {
                case MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN: {
                    v.getBackground().setColorFilter(0xe0f47521,PorterDuff.Mode.SRC_ATOP);
                    v.invalidate();
                    break;
                }
                case MotionEvent.ACTION_UP: {
                    v.getBackground().clearColorFilter();
                    v.invalidate();
                    break;
                }
            }
            return false;
        }
    });
}
