Android :: Setup Background Of A TextView Dynamically From Xml File?

Oct 10, 2010

I have an XMl file like below which I will use to set background for Textview:

row.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

android:shape="rectangle">

The above Xml I will set as background for TextView in main.xml as below:

main.xml

<TextView
android:id="@+id/rowtext3"
android:text="Availablity"
android:layout_height="25px"
android:layout_width="60px"
android:textSize="10px"
android:textStyle="bold"
android:textColor="@color/black"
android:gravity="center"
android:background="@drawable/row"/>

But I want this to do from code rather than Xml.I have done everything that I have done in Xml like font,width,Height,font dynamically through code , but not able to set Background that I mentioned in Xml file . How can we set content of Xml file as background to textview similar to how we set background as XML in main.xml.

In the code I have done like this:
t1=new TextView(this);
t1.setText(ed1.getText());
t1.setHeight(25);
t1.setWidth(60);
t1.setTextSize(10);
But I didn't find how to set background i.e. how to set XML content as background?

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!

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 :: Selector On Background Color Of TextView

Aug 28, 2010

I'm attempting to change the background color of an Android TextView widget when the user touches it. I've created a selector for that purpose, which is stored in res/color/selector.xml and roughly looks like that:

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

The clickable attribute of the TextView is "true", in case that's of interest.

When I assign this selector to a TextView as android:background="@color/selector",

I'm getting the following exception at runtime: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(13130): Caused by: org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException: Binary XML file line #6: <item> tag requires a 'drawable' attribute or child tag defining a drawable

When I change the attribute to drawable, it works, but the result is looking completely wrong because the IDs appear to be interpreted as image references instead of color references (as the "drawable" suggests).

What confuses me is that I can set a color reference, e.g. "@color/black", as the background attribute directly. This is working as expected. Using selectors doesn't work.

I can also use the selector as the textColor without problems.

What's the correct way to apply a background-color-selector to a TextView in Android?

Android :: Scale A Background Image Of A TextView For Droid?

Aug 13, 2010

I'm battling with extending a TextView for my Android app. I'd like to create "bubbles" to display text messages in a conversation, similar to the native iPhone SMS conversations.

Is there a way to implement the resizing of a background image without just stretching it? I'd like to have a single background image that keeps it's corners but get stretched only in defined areas. I think this should be possible because I've seen it in a SMS app, but I wonder how to implement that.
