How to programmatically set maxLength in Android TextView?

I would like to programmatically set

maxLength
property of
TextView
as I don't want to hard code it in the layout. I can't see any
set
method related to
maxLength
.

Can anyone guide me how to achieve this?

Answer

Should be something like that. but never used it for textview, only edittext :

TextView tv = new TextView(this);
int maxLength = 10;
InputFilter[] fArray = new InputFilter[1];
fArray[0] = new InputFilter.LengthFilter(maxLength);
tv.setFilters(fArray);
