I have an EditText where users can set text to bold, italic, etc but I can't figure out how to save that text with styles as .txt file/any otherway to save it.If we save as html page we can't edit the webview. I use getText but that only returns text and no style info.
While it is possible to edit text or type in Docs to Go and QuickOffice, to get to the edit mode is a PITA. The default in Docs to Go is Zoom in or out? WTF. You have to got to menu and toggle the keyboard to be able to add or edit text.
Is there a good notepad or word processing program that defaults to keyboard input? Better yet is there one that also allows highlighting text to cut, copy or paste?

But my problem is i want to apply user selected settings (like font color,size,font) for user selected text instead of Whole text. i want to apply the user selected font/color/size to the user selected text.How?

I am doing a custom edit box class. It starts something like: public class Amount Field extends Edit Text and has over riden the constructor to implement the Edit Text widget style However when I implement this on my XML I get an editable Text View instead of the Edit Text (there is only text but not the surrounding white box) and also when I click on it nothing happens, only text color changes. Are there any ideas on why this happens? I've done list components the same way and style is not altered.

I'm trying to make iPhone-style EditText element on android. The one that will have an additional clear button appear on the right after text input. Adding a new button is not a problem, but I'm a bit stuck with another thing.
A button occupies some space on the right part of EditText, and now characters display beneath the button. How to change maximum shown length of input for EditText? I want EditText width to be N pixels, and editable area to be N-M pixels.
EditText.setWidth changes width for whole edit box. EditText.setEllipsize should be the proper solution, but docs are empty, and as I see it truncates text based on some String value. Applying a LengthFilter cut's the input length to number of characters.
I am a rookie to android. I am thinking of implementing a simple calculator in android to get a hold of the basics in android. I want to display a keypad with numbers and mathematical operations and when the user presses the keys the corresponding number is displayed in edit text. I tried using get text() and updating the contents of edit text but it shows just the contents of pressed button. Also how do I read the contents of button so as to do mathematical operations in code?
I am having an EditText. If i specify image for the EditText in the layout XML file (android:back ground) it looks different and looks different when i specify it at runtime EditText et = (EditText)find ViewById (R.drawable .et1) ; et.setBackgroundDrawable (Main.themes.getDrawable (EDRAWABLES.EditText BackgroundImage )); Both codes point to the same image. When i specify the image at runtime , the EditText leaves a margin at the top and bottom of the cursor in the edittext which does not happen when i do it in XML. I have attached the screenshots of both images. Top image is the one drawn from XML and bottom one is given at runtime. I am not getting the difference ? Actually i am facing similar problems with other Widgets too if i change the logic of specifying the drawable at runtime and not at compile time.. Is this the default SDK behaviour?

On focus of the password box. I wrote as follows: Code...

I am getting some HTML text from a remote server which I am displaying inside a WebView. I need to format the text display and set a font size and color for the WebView. The only way I can think of is: pre-pending the HTML string received with a tag and specify the font information there. What is the correct way to do this?
is it possible to display the edittext widget to be readonly.when we execute a sample program with edittext widget then is it possible for the user to only read the text that is only select it but not modify it anyway.
