Set of Android Widgets that support custom fonts(Typeface)

Note: Font file type support may vary across different android versions

Supported Widgets

* AutoCompleteTextView (as FAutoCompleteTextView)
* Button (as FButton)
* CheckBox (as FCheckBox)
* CheckedTextView (you get the idea…)
* Chronometer
* CompoundButton
* DigitalClock
* EditText
* ExtractEditText
* MultiAutoCompleteTextView
* RadioButton
* Switch
* TextClock
* TextView
* ToggleButton

Every implementation extends default android implementation of that widget
This means that FSwitch for example wont work on SDK < 14, same as default Switch


3 sources for font files are supported: assets, absolute, internal

  • assets – you can include your font file directly in assets folder of your porject
  • absolute – you have to specifi full path of the font file. for example: /sdcard/Roboto-Light.ttf
  • internal – font file should be located relative to your applications private directory(/data/data/com.example.app), You only need to specifie name of the font, not whole path





No need to do anything special in code if you specified source and font in xml
To do everything in code you can do the following:

FTextView tv1 = new FTextView(this);
tv1.setTypeface("Roboto-Light.ttf", TypefaceHolder.Source.asset);
