Is it possible to center text horizontally / vertically in "TextView" on an Android? It needs to appear right in the middle of the TextView. I'm using a XML layout. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should only need to set the TextView’s gravity property to “center”.

android:gravity="center"

If you need to do it from java code, ya can do this way:

myTextView.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
