Android: Adding lines in edittext [duplicate]


I was taking a look at the notepad sample in the android SDK see here: http://developer.android.com/resources/samples/NotePad/src/com/example/android/notepad/NoteEditor.html
Thing is it only draws the current line the cursor is on e.g http://cdn2.staztic.com/screenshots/simple-notepad-app-al-1.jpg
But I'd like to display lines that fill up the screen e.g. http://www.itismyworld.info/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/AK-notebook.png
Any suggestions would be great. The relevent bit of code seems to be here:
protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
// Gets the number of lines of text in the View.
int count = getLineCount();
// Gets the global Rect and Paint objects
Rect r = mRect;
Paint paint = mPaint;
/*
* Draws one line in the rectangle for every line of text in the EditText
*/
for (int i = 0; i < count; i++) {
// Gets the baseline coordinates for the current line of text
int baseline = getLineBounds(i, r);
/*
* Draws a line in the background from the left of the rectangle to the right,
* at a vertical position one dip below the baseline, using the "paint" object
* for details.
*/
canvas.drawLine(r.left, baseline + 1, r.right, baseline + 1, paint);
}
// Finishes up by calling the parent method
super.onDraw(canvas);
}
This is the code, based on jkhouws1's suggestion and google's note editor
public class LinedEditText extends EditText {
private Rect mRect;
private Paint mPaint;
// we need this constructor for LayoutInflater
public LinedEditText(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
super(context, attrs);
mRect = new Rect();
mPaint = new Paint();
mPaint.setStyle(Paint.Style.FILL_AND_STROKE);
mPaint.setColor(R.color.edit_note_line); //SET YOUR OWN COLOR HERE
}
#Override
protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
//int count = getLineCount();
int height = getHeight();
int line_height = getLineHeight();
int count = height / line_height;
if (getLineCount() > count)
count = getLineCount();//for long text with scrolling
Rect r = mRect;
Paint paint = mPaint;
int baseline = getLineBounds(0, r);//first line
for (int i = 0; i < count; i++) {
canvas.drawLine(r.left, baseline + 1, r.right, baseline + 1, paint);
baseline += getLineHeight();//next line
}
super.onDraw(canvas);
}
}
In Eclipse IDE press Ctrl+Shift+O to add all needed imports
I think this is what you need:
public class LinedEditText extends EditText {
private static Paint linePaint;
static {
linePaint = new Paint();
linePaint.setColor(Color.BLACK);
linePaint.setStyle(Style.STROKE);
}
public LinedEditText(Context context, AttributeSet attributes) {
super(context, attributes);
}
#Override
protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
Rect bounds = new Rect();
int firstLineY = getLineBounds(0, bounds);
int lineHeight = getLineHeight();
int totalLines = Math.max(getLineCount(), getHeight() / lineHeight);
for (int i = 0; i < totalLines; i++) {
int lineY = firstLineY + i * lineHeight;
canvas.drawLine(bounds.left, lineY, bounds.right, lineY, linePaint);
}
super.onDraw(canvas);
}
}
maybe after that for loop, you draw estimated* additional lines.
getHeight() will return EditText's height in pixels
getLineHeight() will height of one standard line
so getHeight/getlineHeight-getCount will be number of lines left to draw.
you can't use getLineBounds, using the above functions you could calculate the position of the remaining lines to draw.
*Estimated since formatting of text could change the line height, but since there is no text in these lines yet that shouldnt be an issue. But for that same reason you should only draw the remaining lines, and not use this to draw all the lines.
<com.example.goh2.pronoornotepad.LinedEditText
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:background="#ffffcc4b"
android:gravity="top|left"
android:singleLine="false"
android:text=""
/>
The above XML works with the code from Max4ever's answer:
public class LinedEditText extends EditText {
private Rect mRect;
private Paint mPaint;
// we need this constructor for LayoutInflater
public LinedEditText(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
super(context, attrs);
mRect = new Rect();
mPaint = new Paint();
mPaint.setStyle(Paint.Style.FILL_AND_STROKE);
mPaint.setColor(R.color.edit_note_line); //SET YOUR OWN COLOR HERE
}
#Override
protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
//int count = getLineCount();
int height = getHeight();
int line_height = getLineHeight();
int count = height / line_height;
if (getLineCount() > count)
count = getLineCount();//for long text with scrolling
Rect r = mRect;
Paint paint = mPaint;
int baseline = getLineBounds(0, r);//first line
for (int i = 0; i < count; i++) {
canvas.drawLine(r.left, baseline + 1, r.right, baseline + 1, paint);
baseline += getLineHeight();//next line
}
super.onDraw(canvas);
}
}
