AnyTextView

endorse

Frustration arise the moment you realise that you cannot use a custom font by setting TextView's android:typeface XML-attribute. AnyTextView is here to relieve your pain.

Download

Add AnyTextView as a dependency in your pom.xml(s):

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.ctrlplusz</groupId>
  <artifactId>anytextview</artifactId>
  <version>1.0</version>
  <type>apklib</type>
</dependency>

Alternatively, download the .apklib and reference it from your project. If you're using Eclipse you must unzip the .apklib, and reference the extracted project.

How to use:

1) Copy the fonts you want to use into the assets/fonts folder of your project

2) Add your application namespace to the root element in the XML file that is to contain AnyTextView's, e.g

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ScrollView
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        xmlns:foobar="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/com.foo.bar"
        .. >

3) Instead of using

<TextView ..>

use

<com.ctrplusz.anytextview.AnyTextView 
    foobar:typeface="FontFileName.ttf" ..> <!-- Where "foobar" is the namespace defined in step 2 -->

4) Profit!
