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.
