TextView in Android

In Android, TextView displays text to the user and optionally allows them to edit it programmatically.
TextView is a complete text editor, however basic class is configured to not allow editing but we can edit it.


View is the parent class of TextView. Being a subclass of view the text view component can be used in your app’s
GUI inside a ViewGroup, or as the content view of an activity.
We can create a TextView instance by declaring it inside a layout(XML file) or by instantiating
it programmatically(Java Class).
TextView code in XML:

<TextView android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="PirawenAndroid" />
TextView code in JAVA:

TextView textView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView);

textView.setText("PirawenAndroid"); //set text for text view


Attributes of TextView:
Now let’s we discuss about the attributes that helps us to configure a TextView in your xml file.
1. id: id is an attribute used to uniquely identify a text view. Below is the example code in which we set
the id of a text view.
<TextView
android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

2. gravity: The gravity attribute is an optional attribute which is used to control the alignment of the
text like left, right, center, top, bottom, center_vertical, center_horizontal etc.
Below is the example code with explanation included in which we set the center_horizontal gravity for text
of a TextView.
<TextView
android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="PirawenAndroid"
android:textSize="20sp"
android:gravity="center_horizontal"/> <!--center horizontal gravity-->

3. text: text attribute is used to set the text in a text view. We can set the text in xml as well as in the java class.
Below is the example code with explanation included in which we set the text “PirawenAndroid” in a text view.

<TextView
android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"

android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_centerInParent="true"
android:textSize="25sp"
android:text="PirawenAndroid"/><!--Display Text as PirawenAndroid-->
In Java class:
Below is the example code in which we set the text in a textview programmatically means in java class.
TextView textView = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView);
textView.setText("PirawenAndroid"); //set text for text view
4. textColor: textColor attribute is used to set the text color of a text view.
Color value is in the form of “#argb”, “#rgb”, “#rrggbb”, or “#aarrggbb”.
Below is the example code with explanation included in which we set the red color for the displayed text.
<TextView
android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="PirawenAndroid"
android:layout_centerInParent="true"
android:textSize="25sp"
android:textColor="#f00"/><!--red color for text view-->


In Java class:
Below is the example code in which we set the text in a textview programmatically means in java class.
TextView textView = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView);
textView.setText("PirawenAndroid"); //set text for text view
4. textColor: textColor attribute is used to set the text color of a text view.
Color value is in the form of “#argb”, “#rgb”, “#rrggbb”, or “#aarrggbb”.
Below is the example code with explanation included in which we set the red color for the displayed text.
<TextView
android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"

android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="PirawenAndroid"
android:layout_centerInParent="true"
android:textSize="25sp"
android:textColor="#f00"/><!--red color for text view-->

In Java class:
Below is the example code in which we set the text size of a text view programmatically means in java class.
TextView textView = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView);
textView.setTextSize(20); //set 20sp size of text

6. textStyle: textStyle attribute is used to set the text style of a text view.
The possible text styles are bold, italic and normal.  If we need to use two or more styles for a text view then
“|” operator is used for that.
Below is the example code with explanation included in which we  set the bold and italic text styles for text.

<TextView
   android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
   android:layout_width="wrap_content"
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"
   android:text="PirawenAndroid"
   android:layout_centerInParent="true"
   android:textSize="40sp"
   android:textStyle="bold|italic"/><!--bold and italic text style of text-->
7. background: background attribute is used to set the background of a text view.
We can set a color or a drawable in the background of a text view.
8. padding: padding attribute is used to set the padding from left, right, top or bottom.
In above example code of background we also set the 10dp padding from all the side’s of text view.
Below is the example code with explanation included in which we set the black color for the background,
white color for the displayed text and set 10dp padding from all the side’s for text view.
<TextView
android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="PirawenAndroid"
android:layout_centerInParent="true"
android:textSize="40sp"
android:padding="10dp"
android:textColor="#fff"
android:background="#000"/> <!--red color for background of text view-->
In Java class:
Below is the example code in which we set the background color of a text view programmatically means in
java class.
TextView textView = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView);
textView.setBackgroundColor(Color.BLACK);//set background color

Example of TextView:
Below is the example of TextView in which we display a text view and set the text in xml file and then change
the text on button click event programmatically. Below is the final output and code:
Step 1: Create a new project and name it textViewExample.

Select File -> New -> New Project. Fill the forms and click "Finish" button.
Step 2: Open res -> layout -> xml (or) activity_main.xml and add following code.
Here we will create a button and a textview in Relative Layout.

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
   android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
   android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
   android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">

   <TextView
       android:id="@+id/simpleTextView"
       android:layout_width="wrap_content"
       android:layout_height="wrap_content"
       android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
       android:text="Before Clicking"
       android:textColor="#f00"
       android:textSize="25sp"
       android:textStyle="bold|italic"
       android:layout_marginTop="50dp"/>

   <Button
       android:id="@+id/btnChangeText"
       android:layout_width="wrap_content"
       android:layout_height="wrap_content"
       android:layout_centerInParent="true"

       android:background="#f00"
       android:padding="10dp"
       android:text="Change Text"
       android:textColor="#fff"
       android:textStyle="bold" />
</RelativeLayout>


Step 3: Open app -> java -> package and open MainActivity.java and add the following code.
Here we will change the text of TextView after the user click on Button.

package example.irawen.textviewexample;

import android.graphics.Color;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
       super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
       setContentView(R.layout.activity_main); //set the layout

       final TextView simpleTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.simpleTextView);

//get the id for TextView

       Button changeText = (Button) findViewById(R.id.btnChangeText); //get the id for button

       changeText.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
           @Override

           public void onClick(View view) {
               simpleTextView.setText("After Clicking"); //set the text after clicking button

           }
       });
   }


}

Output:
Now run the app in Emulator and click on the button. You will see text will change “After Clicking”.
