  1. private void ShowPopup(){

    final Dialog dialog = new Dialog(mcontext,;
    // nestedScrollView.setBackgroundColor(Color.parseColor("#526565"));
    dialog.getWindow().setLayout(WindowManager.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT, WindowManager.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
    dialog.getWindow().setBackgroundDrawable(new ColorDrawable(;
    contactmobile = dialog.findViewById(;
    contactname = dialog.findViewById(;
    ok = dialog.findViewById(;
    // email.setText(mPostData.get(contact.getId()).getEmail());
    // mobile.setText(mPostData.get(contact.getId()).getMobile());
    ok.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
    public void onClick(View view) {
    // Intent intent =new Intent(mcontext,LoginActivity.class);
