Linkify.MatchFilter

public static interface Linkify.MatchFilter

android.text.util.Linkify.MatchFilter


MatchFilter enables client code to have more control over what is allowed to match and become a link, and what is not. For example: when matching web URLs you would like things like http://www.example.com to match, as well as just example.com itelf. However, you would not want to match against the domain in support@example.com. So, when matching against a web URL pattern you might also include a MatchFilter that disallows the match if it is immediately preceded by an at-sign (@).
