AlignmentSpan.Standard

public static class AlignmentSpan.Standard
extends Object implements AlignmentSpan, ParcelableSpan

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.text.style.AlignmentSpan.Standard


Default implementation of the AlignmentSpan.

For example, a text written in a left to right language, like English, which is by default aligned to the left, can be aligned opposite to the layout direction like this:

SpannableString string = new SpannableString("Text with opposite alignment");
string.setSpan(new AlignmentSpan.Standard(Layout.Alignment.ALIGN_OPPOSITE), 0,
string.length(), Spanned.SPAN_EXCLUSIVE_EXCLUSIVE);
Align left to right text opposite to the layout direction.

A text written in a right to left language, like Hebrew, which is by default aligned to the right, can be aligned opposite to the layout direction like this:

SpannableString string = new SpannableString("טקסט עם יישור הפוך");
string.setSpan(new AlignmentSpan.Standard(Layout.Alignment.ALIGN_OPPOSITE), 0,
string.length(), Spanned.SPAN_EXCLUSIVE_EXCLUSIVE);
Align right to left text opposite to the layout direction.

AlignmentSpan.Standard

added in API level 1
public AlignmentSpan.Standard (Layout.Alignment align)

Constructs a AlignmentSpan.Standard from an alignment.

Parameters
align Layout.Alignment

This value must never be null.

AlignmentSpan.Standard

added in API level 3
public AlignmentSpan.Standard (Parcel src)

Constructs a AlignmentSpan.Standard from a parcel.

Parameters
src Parcel

This value must never be null.

Public methods

describeContents

added in API level 3
public int describeContents ()

Describe the kinds of special objects contained in this Parcelable instance's marshaled representation. For example, if the object will include a file descriptor in the output of writeToParcel(Parcel, int), the return value of this method must include the CONTENTS_FILE_DESCRIPTOR bit.

Returns
int a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshaled by this Parcelable object instance.

getAlignment

added in API level 1
public Layout.Alignment getAlignment ()

Returns the alignment of the text.

Returns
Layout.Alignment the text alignment

getSpanTypeId

added in API level 3
public int getSpanTypeId ()

Return a special type identifier for this span class.

Returns
int

writeToParcel

added in API level 3
public void writeToParcel (Parcel dest, 
                int flags)

Flatten this object in to a Parcel.

Parameters
dest Parcel: The Parcel in which the object should be written.

This value must never be null.

flags int: Additional flags about how the object should be written. May be 0 or Parcelable.PARCELABLE_WRITE_RETURN_VALUE.
