WhatsappFormatter

Intro

WhatsappFormatter repo helps to perform formatting just like whatsapp does it on its EditText and TextView. The repo provides custom view such as

  • WhatsappTextView - a TextView that can be used for chat head and the formatting takes place by default.
  • WhatsappEditText - a EditText that can be used for compose box that shows the live formatting as and when we type.

Also provides one liner compatablity for your existing EditText / TextViews.

Demo

Usage

Simple One liner Compatablity

ViewCompat for EditText
EditText editText; // your version of EditText object.
WhatsappViewCompat.applyFormatting(editText);

If you had text change listeners, use it this way to prevent multiple TextWatcher callbacks.

EditText editText; // your version of EditText object.
TextWatcher watcher1, watcher2, watcher3, watcher_n; // your watcher objects.
WhatsappViewCompat.applyFormatting(editText, watcher1, watcher2, watcher3, watcher_n);
ViewCompat for TextView
TextView textView; // your version of TextView object.
WhatsappViewCompat.applyFormatting(textView);

CustomViews

                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:textColor="@android:color/black"
                android:textSize="16sp" />
