Android Question

Can´t center textview´s text vertically

[Solved] I had to add

android:fillViewport="true"
to the ScrollView, that fixed the problem with the text not centering vertically.

I know this has been answered many times before, but I´m still not able to center a textview´s text vertically.

<ScrollView
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/scrollView"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent">

<RelativeLayout
android:id="@+id/relativelayout"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content">

<ImageView
android:id="@+id/icon"
android:layout_width="@dimen/icon_width"
android:layout_height="@dimen/icon_height"
android:src="@drawable/picture" />

<TextView
android:id="@+id/title"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/icon"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/icon"
android:layout_alignTop="@+id/icon"
android:text="@string/title_text"
android:textSize="@dimen/textsize"
android:textStyle="bold"
android:textColor="@color/color"
android:shadowColor="@color/shadow"
android:shadowRadius="5"/>

</RelativeLayout>
</ScrollView>


Normally this should work with

android:gravity="center_vertical"


but it has no effect on the textview...

Weird thing is that I have a second app with the exact same code and it´s working there without any problems.

/edit

To clarify my question:
This is what I have right now:

Answer

replace your TextView with this code and it will work fine

        <TextView
        android:id="@+id/title"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/icon"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:layout_alignTop="@+id/icon"
        android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/icon"
        android:shadowColor="@color/shadow"
        android:shadowRadius="5"
        android:text="@string/title_text"
        android:textColor="@color/color"
        android:textSize="@dimen/textsize"
        android:textStyle="bold" />
