Android :: Determine How Much Text Will Fit In A TextView In Droid?

Aug 4, 2010

I have a layout that looks something like this:

[TextView 1] [TextView 2]
[ TextView 2 spill-over ]

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.

Android :: Adjust Text Kerning In Droid TextView?

Oct 28, 2009

Is there a way to adjust the spacing between characters in an Android TextView? I believe this is typically called "kerning".

I'm aware of the android:textScaleX attribute, but that compresses the characters along with the spacing.

Android :: Android RelativeLayout - Trying To Vertically Center A TextView When The TextView Below Has No Text

Jul 14, 2010

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.

Android :: Part Of Text Focusable Within A TextView

Aug 19, 2010

I have this currently.

CODE:............

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.

Android : Way To Scale / Resize Text To Fit A TextView?

Apr 7, 2010

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.

Android : Changing Text Value Of A Textview Dynamically

Nov 9, 2010

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.

This is the code that I tried:

TextView userText = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.User);

userText.setText(bundle.getString("user"));

In debug mode, I can see that usertext has the changed text, but the change doesn't appear on my mobile window... I don't know why.

EDIT: SOLVED! it was a problem with my relative layout, text is out of the window!
