Android set the gravity for a TextView programmatically


Question

I can use android:gravity="bottom|center_horizontal" in xml on a textview to get my desired results, but I need to do this programmatically. My textview is inside a tablerow if that matters in a relativelayout.

I have tried:

LayoutParams layoutParams = new TableRow.LayoutParams(LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, Gravity.BOTTOM | Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL);
labelTV.setLayoutParams(layoutParams);

But if I understand correctly, that would apply it to the tablerow, not the textview?

Accepted Answer

labelTV.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER | Gravity.BOTTOM);

Kotlin version (thanks to Thommy)

labelTV.gravity = Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL or Gravity.BOTTOM

Also, are you talking about gravity or about layout_gravity? The latter won't work in a RelativeLayout.

This will center the text in a text view:

TextView ta = (TextView) findViewById(R.layout.text_view);
LayoutParams lp = new LayoutParams();
lp.gravity = Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL;
ta.setLayoutParams(lp);
