Android : How to make TextView Scrollable


To make a TextView text Scrollable vertically simply surround the TextView with a ScrollView.

Let's see an example, add huge dummy data to the text of TextView so it's scrollable.

Example :

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
     android:layout_width="fill_parent"
     android:layout_height="fill_parent"
     android:padding="10dp" >

<ScrollView
     android:id="@+id/scrollView"
     android:layout_width="fill_parent"
     android:layout_height="fill_parent"
     android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" >

<TextView
     android:id="@+id/textView"
     android:layout_width="match_parent"
     android:layout_height="match_parent"
     android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
     android:layout_centerVertical="true"

     android:text="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
