Android :: How To "truncate" Text Inside Textview In Phone?

Nov 4, 2010

I created a simple Java function to truncate a string to be displayed in my list view. I am displaying a news title and below this a news summary. I would like to have the same behavior as the image below. Currently, i am truncating the news title with 45 chars and then appending "..." at the end of it. However, when I change the orientation to landscape, the title could appear without being truncated. I don't think the app below truncates the news title, but it keeps the title in a single line and automatically "truncates". How can I achieve this behavior in my app?

Android :: TextView Automatically Truncate Last 3 Char Of String

Nov 3, 2009

If a String is longer than the TextView's width it automatically wraps onto the next line. I can avoid this by using android:singleLine (deprecated) or by setting android:inputType="text". What I now need is something that replaces the last 3 characters of my String with "...". Since I'm not using a monospace font this will always be different depending on the letters used in my String. So I'm wondering what's the best way to get the last 3 characters of a String in a TextView and replace them. Maybe there's already something implemented in the Android framework, since this must me a common problem.

Android :: Dynamically Change Text Color Of A TextView Inside A ListView

Nov 18, 2010

I'm trying to create a game lobby for a project, and I'd like the game's status text to be a different color: red for an "[IN PROGRESS]" game and green for a game that's "[Waiting for x players]". The ListView will be populated with data, and each ListView item will have a game ID and then immediately to the right of that the game's status.

Right now I'm essentially using the Hello ListView code to create my ListView.

(In constructor)

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

Then, I have a refresh button that obtains data from our database. It will get two Strings, one for the ID of the game, and the other for the status of the game. If the game status is 0, then it's still waiting for players. If the game status is 1, then the game has started. So, I create a gameItem to add to the gameList:

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

This is where I'm stuck. I don't really understand how I can alter the specific TextView when I create the gameItem or when I add that to the gameList. There isn't a way I can see of accessing the TextView's properties. I see how the text of the view is set (through the mapping of the strings to "line1" and "line2", but I don't know how to change any of the properties.

Android :: How To Customise The TextView Inside A Spinner

Apr 26, 2010

I have a Spinner with an ArrayAdapter that feeds Values into it. The layout for this views looks something like this:

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

The Problem is that the text is to long for the view and the result is a very very ugly spinner. As can be seen in the screenshot:

I tried to pass the Id of my own TextView into the Adapter but everytime the spinner should be shown I get an Exception that the Id I supplied is not valid:

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

Where do I have to define the TextView? In a separate xml file? With a surrounding viewgroup?

It would help me a lot if I could see an example of the adapter initialization and the textview definition?

Android :: Multiple Styles Inside A TextView?

Oct 7, 2009

I was wondering if its possible to set multiple styles for different pieces of text inside a TextView. For instance, I am setting the text as follows:

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

Now, is it possible to have a different style for each text element? I mean bold for line1, normal for word1 and so on...

I found this http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/faq/commontasks.html#selectingtext:

Get our EditText object. EditText vw = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.text);

Set the EditText's text. vw.setText("Italic, highlighted, bold.");

If this were just a TextView, we could do: vw.setText("Italic, highlighted, bold.", TextView.BufferType.SPANNABLE); to force it to use Spannable storage so styles can be attached. Or we could specify that in the XML.

Get the EditText's internal text storage. Spannable str = vw.getText();

Create our span sections, and assign a format to each.

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

But it uses position numbers inside the text. Is there a cleaner way to do this?

Android :: HTML Links In A TextView Inside A ListView

Jan 29, 2009

I've got a ListView where each item in the list is contains several controls. One of the items is a checkbox, and I can check/uncheck it without problems. The other items are some TextViews and a WebView. I've got autoLink turned on and linksClickable turned on, but I can't get links to fire up the browser when I click on them. This applies to both TextView and WebView. I've tried changing the parent to a GridView instead of a ListView, playing with setFocusable(), and all that, but to no avail.

Is it even possible to have interaction on the TextView-based elements of a row in a ListView? It seems like that *should* be possible, but I've been banging my head against this problem for a few weeks with no progress. What's the secret?

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 :: TextView Inside LinearLayout Stretches The LinearLayout

Aug 21, 2010

If I have 2 LinearLayouts split %50/%50 everything is fine. Weights are 1 and 1. As soon as I add a TextView inside the top LinearLayout, it stretches that layout. I use "wrap_content" as the documentation says I should when it comes to weights. As you can see the red and green should be split evenly and text on grey background should be inside red box.

Here is the code:..............

Now if I switch to "fill parent" as follows it actually works but it creates another problem. Here is the code (so far so good):

So looking at above we were forced to use "fill_parent" and we would think like we fixed the problem but here is the problem if we are using "fill_parent" (I took out the textview just to show the problem, textview doesnt make the problem go away anyways):

As you can see I assign the weights 3 (top red) and 2 (bottom green) but what actually happens is they get flipped: The red becomes 2 and bottom becomes 3. Just measure the pixels too see.

Here are the results of the 3 codes: http://imgur.com/iVt8g.jpg
