Android Question

How can I change font size in PreferenceScreen

<PreferenceScreen xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<PreferenceCategory
android:title="First Category"
android:textSize="20px">

<CheckBoxPreference
android:title="Checkbox Preference"
android:defaultValue="false"
android:summary="This preference can be true or false"
android:key="checkboxPref" />

</PreferenceCategory>
</PreferenceScreen>


I need to change
android:title
font size of
PrefereceCategory
,
CheckboxPreference
and
android:summary
size. These tags don't have any
android:textSize
attribute. Can any one help me how to get this?

Answer

Finally I was able to solve my problem simply by passing one layout. Maybe this will be helpful to someone. This is my modified preference.xml see below code. We can apply our own properties to pref title and summary.

preference.xml:

<PreferenceScreen xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <PreferenceCategory
        android:title="First Category"
        android:textSize="20px"
        android:layout="@layout/mylayout">             

        <CheckBoxPreference
            android:title="Checkbox Preference"
            android:defaultValue="false"
            android:summary="This preference can be true or false"
            android:key="checkboxPref"
            android:layout="@layout/mylayout"/>

    </PreferenceCategory>
</PreferenceScreen>

mylayout.xml:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent">

    <TextView android:id="@+android:id/title"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
        android:textSize="40px"/>  

    <TextView android:id="@+android:id/summary"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
        android:textSize="26px"/>

</LinearLayout>

Please ask me if any queries....Keep Smiling. If this is useful give me one comment.
