java – How to add watermark in android widget EditText?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

Please provide the implementation of watermark text in EditText widget of android,even after Googling it, but cannot find proper solution!

How to solve:

If by “watermark text” you mean the text which appears in the field when it is empty, then use the attribute android:hint="My Text" in the layout or programmatically call setHint( "My Text" ) on your EditText object.


You can add a layout make its height and width fill_parent and make background transparent and add a TextView as a water-mark in this layout.

I hope it can work.
