Android Question

Is it possible to have multiple Typefaces in the same TextView?

I know how to change text attributes and color for a

TextView
, but is it possible to have multiple
Typefaces
in the same
TextView
?

For instance, can I use both Droid Sans and Droid Mono in the same
TextView
at the same time?

If so, how?

Answer

Actually it looks like you can do it with the help of a Spannable:

String text = "This is an example";

Spannable s = new SpannableString(text + " text");
s.setSpan(new TypefaceSpan("monospace"), 0, text.length(),
            Spannable.SPAN_EXCLUSIVE_EXCLUSIVE);
s.setSpan(new TypefaceSpan("serif"), text.length(), s.length(),
            Spannable.SPAN_EXCLUSIVE_EXCLUSIVE);

((TextView)findViewById(R.id.my_text_view)).setText(s);
