SpannableString in android


The SpannableString in android is a powerful way to beautify and manipulate different part of a simple text.


What is SpannableString?


This is the class for text whose content is immutable but to which markup objects can be attached and detached.


This implies that for a immutable content/string , we can provide different markup objects like URLSpan, ForegroundColorSpan, RelativeSizeSpan, ImageSpan, BackgroundColorSpan , ClickableSpan etc.


How to manipulate only a part of string by using SpannableString?

It is same as how it is done in the web

1. Creating a ClickableSpan

2. Creating a SpannableString

This will set the click action to a particular portion of the text.

3.  Setting SpannableString to TextView

The support is fast and do everything in their power to make it perfect. If you need customization it's also done right away. I had massive research to select Mobikul and now I'm sure it was the right one.
