Just add below attribute to TextView in XML layout file to make it clickable.

android:clickable="true"

In your Java file add OnClickListener to complete click action on text view.

Answer:

Add android:clickable="true" and android:onClick="yourclickname" for the TextView in the XML. Then define yourclickname in your activity. This should make your TextView clickable and triggers the specified method when clicked.
