setSpan

abstract fun setSpan(what: Any!, start: Int, end: Int, flags: Int): Unit

Attach the specified markup object to the range start…end of the text, or move the object to that range if it was already attached elsewhere. See Spanned for an explanation of what the flags mean. The object can be one that has meaning only within your application, or it can be one that the text system will use to affect text display or behavior. Some noteworthy ones are the subclasses of android.text.style.CharacterStyle and android.text.style.ParagraphStyle, and android.text.TextWatcher and android.text.SpanWatcher.

removeSpan

abstract fun removeSpan(what: Any!): Unit

Remove the specified object from the range of text to which it was attached, if any. It is OK to remove an object that was never attached in the first place.
