Android Question

Android set the gravity for a TextView programmatically

I can use

android:gravity="bottom|center_horizontal"
in xml on a textview to get my desired results, but I need to do this programmatically. My textview is inside a
tablerow
if that matters in a
relativelayout
.

I have tried:

LayoutParams layoutParams = new TableRow.LayoutParams(LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, Gravity.BOTTOM | Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL);
labelTV.setLayoutParams(layoutParams);


But if I understand correctly, that would apply it to the
tablerow
, not the textview?

Answer
labelTV.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER | Gravity.BOTTOM);

Also, are you talking about gravity or about layout_gravity? The latter won't work in a RelativeLayout.
