How to set line spacing in a textview in android?

By | July 21, 2012

This is really simple in android. TextViews has a property called “lineSpacingExtra” which you can change to set the line spacing.

   <TextView 
           android:text="Data" 
		  	android:id="@+id/textview" 
		  	android:layout_gravity="top"
		  	android:gravity="left"
		  	android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
		  	android:layout_height="wrap_content"
		  	android:layout_centerVertical="true"
		  	android:layout_margin="5dp"
		  	android:padding="5dp"
		  	android:textSize="20sp"
		  	android:lineSpacingExtra="10dp">
		  </TextView>

OR

you can call

textView.setLineSpacing()

in the java code itself.
