I have a textView with a single character in it (all single digit, numbers 0-9). I'd like to draw a circle or a square around the number. I saw a thread mention using a nine-patch to style around it, but I'm unsure of how to do this (or if it is the best way to do it). How can I have a circle around the number?
Just need to create a round drawable like this
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="oval"> <corners android:radius="10dip"/> <stroke android:color="@color/red" android:width="2dip"/> <solid android:color="@android:color/transparent"/> </shape>
And set this drawable as your TextView background.
