Center align text in TextView Android Programming


To align text in TextView at the center vertically and horizontally we need to make use of gravity attribute.

Example 1 :

You can use center_vertical | center_horizontal value to set the text at the center of the TextView area.

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

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_width="300dp"
    android:layout_height="400dp"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:gravity="center_vertical|center_horizontal"
    android:text="Example 1" />

</RelativeLayout>
Example 2: You can also use center value to get the same result
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent" >

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView2"
    android:layout_width="300dp"
    android:layout_height="400dp"
    android:gravity="center"
    android:text="Example 2" />

</RelativeLayout>
Result :
TextView Text displayed at the center.png
TextView Text displayed at the center.png
