Multiline TextView in Android?

I did like below in

xml


<TableRow>
<TextView android:id="@+id/address1"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:gravity="left"
android:maxLines="4"
android:singleLine="false"
android:text="Johar Mor, Gulistan-e-Johar, Karachi" >
</TextView>
</TableRow>


It is not working for
multiline
, and I am using
TableLayout
,,,

so what is mistake I am doing here?

Answer

If the text you're putting in the TextView is short, it will not automatically expand to four lines. If you want the TextView to always have four lines regardless of the length of the text in it, set the android:lines attribute:

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/address1"
    android:gravity="left"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:maxLines="4"
    android:lines="4"
    android:text="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat."></TextView>
