JustifiedTextView

JustifiedTextView is an Android View that justifies the Text! ????????

Android introduced in API level 26 the method setJustificationMode(int), which is meant to justify the text inside a TextView.

If your min API level is 26, I recommend TextView.setJustificationMode(int). But if you need to support older Android versions, JustifiedTextView is what you need 😉

Usage

You just have to add the view in your layout:

<com.codesgood.views.JustifiedTextView
        android:id="@+id/tv_justified_paragraph"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:padding="10dp"
        android:text="@string/lorem_ipsum_extended"
        android:textColor="@android:color/black"
        android:textSize="15sp" />

And that's it! 🎉 the text contained in the JustifiedTextView will be justified. (In this example I used 15sp as textSize, but you can use a different textSize and it won't be a problem).

You can set the text programmatically as well ????????, you can even use JustifiedTextView as a regular TextView in your java class (because it extends TextView) and the result would be the same justified text in your UI.

Here is an example:

TextView justifiedParagraph = findViewById(R.id.tv_justified_paragraph);
justifiedParagraph.setText(R.string.lorem_ipsum_extended);
