Add custom font for complete android application

In my application I need to use helvetica font for all the textviews and edit-text fields. Is there any way to do this other than using settypeface method for every textview ? Any suggestion would be a great help.

Thanks in advance !

Answer

I figured it out by my self. This is the code I used. I create custom TextView which has custom font as default font.

public class MyTextView extends TextView {

    public MyTextView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) {
        super(context, attrs, defStyle);
        init();
    }

    public MyTextView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
        init();
    }

    public MyTextView(Context context) {
        super(context);
        init();
    }

    public void init() {
        Typeface tf = Typeface.createFromAsset(getContext().getAssets(), "font/chiller.ttf");
        setTypeface(tf ,1);

    }

}
