android – Implement a custom TextView with custom textSize

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have implemented a custom TextView, then I need to change its text size for future usages. At that step I decided to make its textSize custom with using style.xml and attr.xml

However I am getting a runtime error while my custom layout is inflating. The error related with the parts that Im changed for making it custom.

Here is the code pieces that I was implemented.

attr.xml

<declare-styleable name="FieldLayout">
    <attr name="right_detail_text_size" format="dimension"/>
</declare-styleable>

styles.xml

 <style name="TextViewRightDetail">
    <item name="android:textSize">?attr/right_detail_text_size</item>
 </style>

layout_field_detailed.xml

    <com.my.view.TextViewFont
        android:id="@+id/layout_fielddetailed_textview_rightdetail"
        style="@style/TextViewRightDetail" />

layout_implementation.xml

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:iattr="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical">

    <com.my.view.FieldLayoutDetailed
        android:id="@+id/fieldlayoutdetailed_example"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        iattr:right_detail_text_size="16sp"/>
</LinearLayout>

FieldLayoutDetailed.java

public FieldLayoutDetailed(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
    super(context, attrs);
    TypedArray array = context.obtainStyledAttributes(attrs,R.styleable.FieldLayout, 0, 0);
    LayoutInflater.from(context).inflate(R.layout.layout_field_deailed, this, true);

Error that Im getting at Runtime

Now I am solved the problem by dynamically change text size, but I am curious about the reason of the problem.

Thank you.

How to&Answers:

This is your problem:

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Failed to resolve attribute at index 12
    at android.content.res.TypedArray.getDimensionPixelSize(TypedArray.java:569)
    at com.my.view.TextViewFont.<init>(TextViewFont.java:29)

Possible solution: place this into your contructor of TextViewFont.java

TypedArray a = context.obtainStyledAttributes(
        attrs,
        R.styleable.FieldLayout,
        0, 0);

try {
    final int fontSize = a.getDimensionPixelSize(R.styleable.FieldLayout_right_detail_text_size, 0);
    this.setTextSize(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_PX, fontSize);
}

finally {
    a.recycle();
}

or

TypedArray a = context.obtainStyledAttributes(
        attrs,
        R.styleable.FieldLayout,
        0, 0);

try {
        final int fontSize = a.getDimension(R.styleable.FieldLayout_right_detail_text_size, 0);
        this.setTextSize(fontSize);
}

finally {
    a.recycle();
}
