So, in my strings.xml I have a very long text which I want to format somehow.
How can I put a tab before the first sentence of the text? Also, what is the code for new line? Thanks
\t for tab and
\n for new line.
\n for a line break and
\t if you want to insert a tab.
You can also use some XML tags for basic formatting:
<b> for bold text,
<i> for italics, and
<u> for underlined text
Use \t to add tab and \n for new line, here is a simple example below.
<string name="list_with_tab_tag">\tbanana\torange\tblueberry\tmango</string> <string name="sentence_with_new_line_tag">This is the first sentence\nThis is the second scentence\nThis is the third sentence</string>
You can use
\n for new line and
\t for tabs. Also, extra spaces/tabs are just copied the way you write them in
Strings.xml so just give a couple of spaces where ever you want them.
A better way to reach this would probably be using padding/margin in your view xml and splitting up your long text in different strings in your
Add ‘\t’ for tab
add this line at the top of string.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
from where you want to break your line.
<string> Hello world. \n its awesome. <string>
Hello world. its awesome.
- Include this line in your layout
- Now , use
\nfor new line and
\tfor space like tab.
for \n :
android:text="Welcome back ! \nPlease login to your account agilanbu"
for \t :
android:text="Welcome back ! \tPlease login to your account agilanbu"
