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.
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:
Copy the fonts you want to use into the assets/fonts folder of your project
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" .. >
- Instead of using
<com.ctrplusz.anytextview.AnyTextView foobar:typeface="FontFileName.ttf" ..> <!-- Where "foobar" is the namespace defined in step 2 -->
