By | May 10, 2011

Hi all…….

All of you may be familiar with TextViews in ANDROID.
But how many of you know that we have have html as text in a textView. This post is a simple example to show this.

Create a fresh project and copy this code to the main java file.
[java]
package com.coderzheaven;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.text.Html;
import android.text.method.LinkMovementMethod;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class TextViewLinkDemo extends Activity {
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);

TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.tv);
tv.setText( Html.fromHtml("<b>This is a textView with a link </b> " +
" <br /> <a href="http://www.coderzheaven.com">Coderzheaven</a> " +
"created in the Java source code using HTML."));
tv.setMovementMethod(LinkMovementMethod.getInstance());
}
}
[/java]

The main.xml
[xml]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
>
<TextView
android:id="@+id/tv"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="@string/hello"
/>
</LinearLayout>
[/xml]

The AndroidManifest.xml file
[xml]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.coderzheaven"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0">
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".TextViewLinkDemo"
android:label="@string/app_name">
