This is a bit tutorial to give you some insights about the
Android widget – TextView – and stuff that about it that just might be useful
- TextView is perhaps the most basic of widgets that you will
be using when building your apps. You will use it primarily to display
information. Here are some scenarios where you might use TextView
- You want to display a message, asking the user
to do something.
- For instance, in the ‘alert nildna’ app, we are
using TextView to display messages like ‘enter the random key’ and also to
display the downloaded GPS data.
- You want to update information after it has been
collected from the user.
The Android Studio already provides a number of different
types of TextView widgets. Look at this image here. You see, all those four
options are all ‘TextView’ widgets but with different options.
You will get the properties option, when you select the
TextView widget like this. On the left side is the TextView display some basic
information and on the right is the properties of this widget.

Further, you may want to consider doing some additions to
- Id – use this to set the id of your widget.
- Text – use this to set the text.
- Width – you can adjust the width of this
property, height as well as width.
