Adding to your project

1) Add the library as a dependency to your build.gradle

compile 'com.ivankocijan:MagicViews:version@aar'

2) Specify path to fonts folder in onCreate method of your Application class (See example app).

   public class MyApplication extends Application {

        @Override
        public void onCreate() {
            super.onCreate();

             MagicViews.setFontFolderPath(this, "fontFolderPath");

        }

   }

Usage from layout

1) Add your application namespace to the root element in the XML xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"

2) Instead of TextView use com.ivankocijan.magicviews.views.MagicTextView

    <com.ivankocijan.magicviews.views.MagicTextView
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:typeFace="cha_chicle.otf"/>

You might encounter this issue after updating: /build/intermediates/exploded-aar/com.android.support/appcompat-v7/23.0.1/res/values-v23/values-v23.xml

There are two options to fix that:

Exclude appcompact-v7 from MagicViews library:

    compile('com.ivankocijan:MagicViews:3.1.0@aar') {
        exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'appcompat-v7'
    }

or Compile your app with Android SDK 23:

   android {
      compileSdkVersion 23
   }

V3.0

  • Library now uses new AppCompat views which backport some cool stuff to pre-lollipop devices. See Android developer blogspot for more info
  • Added new views: RadioButton, AutoCompleteTextView and MultiAutoCompleteTextView
  • Font can now be set from code by calling setFont(String fontName) method
  • Example app is updated with new features
  • Bugfixes
