BabushkaText is a custom
TextView which lets you customize the styling of parts of your text via
Spannables, but without the hassle of having to deal directly with Spannable themselves.
- Create complex style structures for your text without having to add multiple
TextViewsto your view hierarchy.
setSpan(Object what, int start, int end, int flags)calls by using more convenient methods such as
What can I do with BabushkaText?
Examples of different styles. Each one is a single TextView.
Generate the following style:
With the code below:
BabushkaText babushka = (BabushkaText)findViewById(R.id.babushka_text); // Add the first piece "Central Park" babushka.addPiece(new BabushkaText.Piece.Builder("Central Park, NY\n") .textColor(Color.parseColor("#414141")) .build()); // Add the second piece "1.2 mi" babushka.addPiece(new BabushkaText.Piece.Builder("1.2 mi ") .textColor(Color.parseColor("#0081E2")) .textSizeRelative(0.9f) .build()); // Add the third piece "from here" babushka.addPiece(new BabushkaText.Piece.Builder("from here") .textColor(Color.parseColor("#969696")) .textSizeRelative(0.9f) .build()); // Display the final, styled text babushka.display();
What kind of styles can I add?
Right now you can customize the style of your text by using the following methods, which internally get converted to the corresponding
|Babushka Method||Internal Span|
What else can I do?
Once you've created and displayed your BabushkaText, you can modify the text contents of each
Piece individually. For example, if we want to change the
1.2 mi from the above example into
1.9 km, we could do the following:
// grab the Piece at position 1 Piece piece = babushka.getPiece(1); // modify it's text piece.setText("1.9 km "); // you must always call display after you alter a Piece's text babushka.display();
BabushkaText is a single Java file, so you can simply download it and reference it in your project.
