ShorteningTextView

A TextView that shows the right text based on its size!

Installation

Add the following line in the dependencies section of your build.gradle file:

implementation 'com.alexfacciorusso.shorteningtextview:shorteningtextview:0.1.0'

Usage

Use the com.alexfacciorusso.shorteningtextview.ShorteningTextView view into your layouts.

    <com.alexfacciorusso.shorteningtextview.ShorteningTextView
        android:id="@+id/shorteningTextView"
        app:stv_texts="@array/example_strings" 
        ... />

where @array/exampe_strings is an array of strings defined as a resource.

If you want to set the texts in a programmatic way (we all love setting views programmatically, don't we?), a property texts (Kotlin) or setTexts/getTexts (Java) is available!

Kotlin

        val sampleStrings = resources.getStringArray(R.array.example_strings)

        // Notice the `.toList()` since `texts` is a List<String> but Resources.getStringArray
        // returns, of course, an array.
        shorteningTextView.texts = sampleStrings.toList()
        
        // Or also:
        shorteningTextView.texts = listOf("My very long string", "My string")

Java

        final String[] sampleTexts = getResources().getStringArray(R.array.example_strings);

        // Notice the `Arrays.asList` since `texts` is a List<String> but Resources.getStringArray
        // returns, of course, an array.
        shorteningTextView.setTexts(Arrays.asList(sampleTexts));
