Essentially, I need the contents of TextView 2 to wrap to the next line, but start where TextView 1 starts. I was thinking that if I knew how much text would fit into TextView 2 before it runs out of space on line one, I could take the rest of the text and put it in another TextView below the first two. So I need to measure how much text will fit into a TextView (which can be tricky because as far as I can tell, Android will try to break the text in a TextView at a good location so that it won't break a word in the middle if it can be avoided) or I need a new idea on how to lay this out.
How can I determine the number of visible characters that a TextView can display. For example if I change the orientation this number may change. If I change the resolution then also the number of visible characters changes.
I have a TextView with an OnTouchListener. What I want is the character index the user is pointing to when I get the MotionEvent. Is there any way to get to the underlying font metrics of the TextView?
I'm not referring to textInput, either. I mean that once you have static text in a TextView (populated from a Database call to user inputted data (that may not be Capitalized)), how can I make sure they are capitalized?
I have a ListView that contains an Image on the left of two vertically-oriented TextViews using a RelativeLayout. When both TextViews have text it looks fine. Sometimes the TextView on the bottom won't have any text, and the problem is that the entire layout is several pixels above where it should be because it still reserves that space for text when there isn't any making the entire list have annoying blank gaps. I remember seeing an example of where someone made the layout not reserve the space, but I can't remember how he did it.
i can't set the text into the textView. If it's in constructor getMesured return 0; if it's in the onSizeChanged - measurements are calculating but TextView after set text have measurements too small to fit the text. If i put set text in a thread for example everything works, but i don't want a delay . Question - where i need set text to my view to render this correctly ?
My activity displays a text view where the text is constantly changed with updates from a LocationListener. When returning to the activity after navigating away, the text view comes back with the savedInstanceState state but any changes to the text in the text view dont. How do i get the saved instance to save my text view with its current text when navigating away?
Exerts from my layout and values files.
My activity then changes the text in the MGTextView.
I have two activities each contain its own textview any one help me that when i click the one textview text the text goes to the another textview of the second activity please any on help me in this problem
I am using a textview to display some text and I would like different parts of the text to be shown in different colours, e.g. first half of the text in red, second in blue. I cant seem to find a way of doing this. I have heard of using Html.fromHtml() but I am not exactly sure how to do it this way.
The TextView renders with the text that has the word "awesome" bolded and underlined (Yay). However in my view, I cannot focus the subregion of text I specified in the clickablespan. I can click on it with a touch event, but I cannot focus it. I am testing this on Android 1.5 + 2.1. I have also tried UrlSpan as well.
I have also tried instead of using a ClickableSpan, to actually attach an onClick listener to the entire block of text but that doesn't give the region focus, just makes clicking easier.
I'm trying to create a method for resizing multi-line text in a TextView such that it fits within the bounds (both the X and Y dimensions) of the TextView. At present, I have something, but all it does is resize the text such that just the first letter/character of the text fills the dimensions of the TextView (i.e. only the first letter is viewable, and it's huge). I need it to fit all the lines of the text within the bounds of the TextView.
I have a textview in my XML layout file, but when I try to change its text value with code pragmatically (dynamically, depending on which button the user clicks) then the text of the textview doesn't change.
