android – set dialog fragment title to display from right

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m writing an app in Hebrew (which is rtl).
when I set my title for the dialog fragment it appears on the left.
I tried to make it display on right by doing:

@Override
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
        Bundle savedInstanceState)
{
    //set's up the title for this dialog fragment
    getDialog().getWindow().setGravity(Gravity.RIGHT);
    getDialog().setTitle(R.string.find_Address_text);

but it doesn’t affect the position of the title.
how can i achieve this?

How to&Answers:

Hide the default title and make a custom one in the layout.

To hide the default title:

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setStyle(STYLE_NO_TITLE, 0); // remove title from dialogfragment
}

Then add a TextView to the top of layout with your preferred styling:

<TextView
 android:id="@+id/dialog_title"
 android:layout_width="fill_parent"
 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
 android:gravity="right|center"
 android:text="@string/dialog_title" />

Answer:

I know this is an old thread with an answer. But for other people who may have the same question:

@Override
public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    Dialog dlg = super.onCreateDialog(savedInstanceState);

    dlg.setTitle("Title");
    TextView titleTextView = (TextView) dlg.findViewById(android.R.id.title);
    titleTextView.setGravity(Gravity.RIGHT | Gravity.CENTER_VERTICAL);

    return dlg;
}

This way we have title bar and we don’t need to make a custom one.
