Android TextView Link Example with source code
Author : Ishtek

Setup Eclipse with Android ADT Plugin for test/code environment (by using Android API Level 7 and Emulator).
P.S- Above page is having around 14 images, download size could be around 700KB.

This Page and/or example code is using Android API Level 7 and tested using corresponding Emulator only.
For latest information please refer Android Official website.

Using Android API Level : 7
In this example we shall see a very simple ways to work with
Linkify Utility from Android platform and I have used TextView API from Android Platform
in order to show Linkify from android.text.util package works, as far as this example
is concerned.


This example has a very simple screen with a single TextView with some text shown on it.
By programmatically using Linkify to add appropriate link to portion of texts those are 
matched as an URL or an Email Address or a phone number or a map address etc.



As shown in the above image, those hyper-linked texts are actually link demarcated by
Linkify utility from Android Platform. On click of these links, each type of link
whether be it a URL link, an email link, a phone number link or a map based link,
will be openning up appropriate supported activity for making it usable.

Main screen layout of this example is as follows:
main.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
<TextView  android:id="@+id/txtView"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
    android:text="" android:textSize="12px"
    android:textColorLink="#FFFF00"
    android:textStyle="bold"
    />
</LinearLayout>
And the activity code is something like as follows: TextURLExample.java
package com.techienjoy.example.link;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.text.util.Linkify;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class TextURLExample extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
        
        String str = "This is my web site http://www.techienjoy.com and" +
        		    " you can reach me on my email id as reaching@techienjoy.com" +
                    " and my phone number is 000-000-00000";
        TextView txtView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtView);
        txtView.setText(str);
        Linkify.addLinks(txtView, Linkify.ALL);
       // Alternatively one can choose to use any one type as well,
       // by mentioning only the type of link to use.

       // Linkify.addLinks(txtView, Linkify.EMAIL_ADDRESSES);
        
    }
}
