when editing a String in XML I need to add line breaks. And I wanted to ask what is the RIGHT form when programming for android? Because
<br> works but ECLIPSE marks the area as problematic. If I check out suggestions Eclipse tells me that I shall add a end tag
</br> - IF I add that the line break dissapears...
So the one works but is marked as problematic, the other works not but Eclipse tells me its ok..
What form shall I use?
\n for a line break and
\t if you want to insert a tab.
You can also use some XML tags for basic formatting:
<b> for bold text,
<i> for italics, and
<u> for underlined text.
Other formatting options are shown in this article on the Android Developers' site:
If you are refering to res strings, use CDATA with \n.
