How to find the Text Area(Height/Width) of TextView programmatically in android-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have an EditText, a Button and a TextView. On clicking the button, textview shows the text written in edittext. Is it possible to find the size of textview occupied depending upon text. i.e. If It has three characters “abc“, what is width now, if it has 5 characters like “abcde” , then what is the width ?

How to solve:
Rect bounds = new Rect();
Paint textPaint = textView.getPaint();
textPaint.getTextBounds(text,0,text.length(),bounds);
int height = bounds.height();
int width = bounds.width();

or

textView.setText("bla");
textView.measure(0, 0);
textView.getMeasuredWidth();
textView.getMeasuredHeight();

###

Please try this:

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    TextView edit = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.edit);
    edit.setTextSize(20);       
    edit.setText("Hello, world");       
    edit.measure(0, 0);
    int width = edit.getMeasuredWidth();
    Log.w("width", width.toString());
}

Before you get width, you have to measure the view / label / text edit.
Please let me know if this is not working.

Try this way,hope this will help you to solve your problem.

yourTextView.getViewTreeObserver().addOnGlobalLayoutListener(new ViewTreeObserver.OnGlobalLayoutListener() {
   @Override
   public void onGlobalLayout() {
     int width = yourTextView.getMeasuredWidth();
     int height = yourTextView.getMeasuredHeight();

   }
});

please tell me width in??? do you want ?

TextView method getWidth() gives you width of your view, in pixels

TextView textView = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textview);
textView.getWidth(); //width of your view, in pixels 

###

TextView txt = new TextView(mContext);
txt.setText("Some Text)";
int height = txt.getLineCount() *  txt.getLineHeight();
int width = txt.getWidth();

Well, I haven’t converted this code into swift4 syntax, but the logic will remain the same. This is an extension method for Xamarin.ios(C#).

To Calculate the Height

 public static nfloat GetEstimateHeight(this UITextView textView, UIView View)
    {
        var size = new CoreGraphics.CGSize(View.Frame.Width, height: float.PositiveInfinity);
        var estimatedSize = textView.SizeThatFits(size);
        return estimatedSize.Height;
    }

To Calculate the Width

    public static nfloat GetEstimateWidth(this UITextView textView, UIView View)
    {
        var size = new CoreGraphics.CGSize(View.Frame.Width, height: float.PositiveInfinity);
        var estimatedSize = textView.SizeThatFits(size);
        return estimatedSize.Width;
    }

The logic here that will work for swift is

var size = new CoreGraphics.CGSize(View.Frame.Width, height: float.PositiveInfinity);
        var estimatedSize = textView.SizeThatFits(size);
        var textViewFinalHeight = estimatedSize.Height;
