HashTagHelper

This is a library designed for highlighting hashtags ("#example") and catching click on them.

#Usage Add this snippet to your project build.gradle file:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
}

Add this snippet to your module build.gradle file:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.danylovolokh:hashtag-helper:1.1.0'
}

Getting click events and highligthing hashtags.

private HashTagHelper mTextHashTagHelper;

private TextView mHashTagText;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

  mHashTagText = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.text);
  mTextHashTagHelper = HashTagHelper.Creator.create(getResources().getColor(R.color.colorPrimary), new HashTagHelper.OnHashTagClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onHashTagClicked(String hashTag) {
        
    }
  });
        
  // pass a TextView or any descendant of it (incliding EditText) here.
  // Hash tags that are in the text will be hightlighed with a color passed to HasTagHelper
  mTextHashTagHelper.handle(mHashTagText);
}

Highlighting without click events. Just set "null" instead of HashTagHelper.OnHashTagClickListener;

mTextHashTagHelper = HashTagHelper.Creator.create(getResources().getColor(R.color.colorPrimary), null);
mTextHashTagHelper.handle(mHashTagText);

By default only digits and letters are valid symbols for hashtag To add support of custom symbols like '_' or '-' you need to specify another parameter when creating HashTagHelper

char[] additionalSymbols = new char[]{
                '_',
                '$'
        };
// If you set additional symbols not only letters and digits will be a valid symbols for hashtag
// Example: "hash_tag_with_underscore_and$dolar$sign$is$also$valid_hashtag"
mTextHashTagHelper = HashTagHelper.Creator.create(getResources().getColor(R.color.colorPrimary), null, additionalSymbols);
mTextHashTagHelper.handle(mHashTagText);

To get all hashtags from text.

// get all hashtags with "#", example: "#blueeyes"
List<String> allHashTags = mTextHashTagHelper.getAllHashTags(true);

// get all hashtags without "#", example: "blueeyes"
List<String> allHashTags = mTextHashTagHelper.getAllHashTags(false);
