Using ChipGroup and Chip from Android Support Design Library 28

If you’re not able to upgrade to AndroidX just yet, and you’re still using the support design library in your project you might have ran into an issue when you try to render the chips. I kept having issues, so I wanted to present what fixed this for me:

If you open your styles.xml and add the following to your app theme, it should render the chips. This isn’t a comprehensive guide, just wanted to throw my solution out if anyone else is banging their head against the wall too.

<item name="textAppearanceHeadline1">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Headline1</item>
<item name="textAppearanceHeadline2">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Headline2</item>
<item name="textAppearanceHeadline3">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Headline3</item>
<item name="textAppearanceHeadline4">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Headline4</item>
<item name="textAppearanceHeadline5">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Headline5</item>
<item name="textAppearanceHeadline6">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Headline6</item>
<item name="textAppearanceSubtitle1">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Subtitle1</item>
<item name="textAppearanceSubtitle2">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Subtitle2</item>
<item name="textAppearanceBody1">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Body1</item>
<item name="textAppearanceBody2">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Body2</item>
<item name="textAppearanceCaption">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Caption</item>
<item name="textAppearanceButton">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Button</item>
<item name="textAppearanceOverline">@style/TextAppearance.MaterialComponents.Overline</item>

Hope this helps someone! Cheers.
