Android PopupWindow elevation does not show shadow
Android Popwindow does not show shadows when the elevation is set. It appears to support it from the documentation. I am using 5.0 Lollipop.
Creating the popup as follows:
popupWindow = new PopupWindow(context); popupWindow.setOutsideTouchable(true); popupWindow.setFocusable(true); popupWindow.setElevation(10); popupWindow.setContentView(rootView); popupWindow.showAtLocation(anchorView, Gravity.NO_GRAVITY, xPos, yPos);

As answered by an Android developer.
If the inflated view doesn’t have a background set, or the popup
window itself doesn’t have a background set (or has a transparent
background) then you won’t get a shadow.
which was my case and seems to be yours, since you are not using setBackgroundDrawable.
This worked for me
I’ve opened a new issue suggesting that they update the documentation (https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=174919)
