Autolink inside a TextView in android

How to give autolink for some part of textview ? For example : My text inside TextView is "Please click here to open this webpage". I want to show link for only the text "here". And I should open that webpage onclick of the text "here" but not on the anywhere of TextView. Please help me.

Answer

Put a String in string.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <string name="txtCredits">Support: <a href="http://www.stackoverflow.com">click here</a></string>
</resources>

And you can use it in textView like this:

<TextView
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:id="@+id/text"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:autoLink="web"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:linksClickable="true"
        android:text="@string/txtCredits" />

EDIT

For some reason above code does not work properly. So, add below code also,

TextView t2 = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.text);
t2.setMovementMethod(LinkMovementMethod.getInstance());
