I am looking for a way to change the color of a text of a single word in a
String first = "This word is ";
String next = "red"
TextView t = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textbox);
t.setText(first + next);
Easiest way I know is to just use html.
String first = "This word is "; String next = "<font color='#EE0000'>red</font>"; t.setText(Html.fromHtml(first + next));
But this will require you to rebuild the TextView when (if?) you want to change the color, which could cause a hassle.
