Installation

If you like you can import the project into eclipse, and use it as a library project This is a decent tutorial on using library projects

Realistically, just copy MagicTextView.java & attrs.xml into your project and use them as your own.

Usage

From Xml:

<com.qwerjk.better_text.MagicTextView
    xmlns:qwerjk="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/com.qwerjk.better_text"
    android:textSize="78dp"
    android:textColor="#ff333333"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:drawableLeft="@android:drawable/btn_star"
    android:textStyle="bold"
    android:padding="10dp"
    qwerjk:foreground="@drawable/fake_luxury_tiled"
    qwerjk:innerShadowDy="2"
    qwerjk:innerShadowColor="#FF000000"
    qwerjk:innerShadowRadius="1"
    qwerjk:outerShadowDy="3"
    qwerjk:outerShadowColor="#FF0088ff"
    qwerjk:outerShadowRadius="10"
    qwerjk:strokeColor="#FFff0000"
    qwerjk:strokeJoinStyle="miter"
    qwerjk:strokeWidth="5"
    android:text="Magic" />

From Java:

view = new MagicTextView(context);
view.addInnerShadow(0, -1, 0, 0xFFffffff);
view.addOuterShadow(0, -1, 0, 0xff000000);
view.setStroke(4, 0xFFff0000);
view.setForegroundDrawable(getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.fake_luxury_tiled);
