How to add bulleted list to android application?

I have googled my question but there is not working answer provided. How do add a bulleted list to my textview.

Answer

Tough to do as ul/li/ol are not supported. Fortunately you can use this as syntactic sugar:

&#8226; foo<br/>
&#8226; bar<br/>
&#8226; baz<br/>

&#8226; is the html entity for a list bullet more choices are here http://www.elizabethcastro.com/html/extras/entities.html

more about which tags are supported provided by Mark Murphy (@CommonsWare) http://commonsware.com/blog/Android/2010/05/26/html-tags-supported-by-textview.html Load that up with Html.fromHtml

((TextView)findViewById(R.id.my_text_view)).setText(Html.fromHtml(myHtmlString));
