Hi,

I am loading 5 textparts in 5 txtviews. Soms parts are 1 sentence soms are 3 sentences. I would like the textviews to ‘expand’ according to the content.
How would you tackle this.

Many thanks for any tips

Best regards,
Marc

Do you need the text to be editable? If not then use CustomListView.AddTextItem.

This is the code from CustomListView that sets the label height based on the text:
B4X:
Private Sub CreateLabel(txt As Object) As B4XView
   Dim lbl As Label
   lbl.Initialize("")
   lbl.TextAlignment = DesignerLabel.TextAlignment
   lbl.Font = DesignerLabel.Font
   lbl.Multiline = True
   lbl.TextColor = DefaultTextColor
   If txt Is AttributedString Then
       lbl.AttributedText = txt
   Else
       lbl.Text = txt
   End If
   lbl.Width = sv.ScrollViewContentWidth - 10dip
   lbl.SizeToFit
   Return lbl
End Sub
You can use similar code to create a label with the correct height and then set the TextView height based on the label's height.
