TextView with html table


I have a problem. I want to put in to the “TextView” html format text. I add the like below.

<string name="text"><![CDATA[<table><tr><th bgcolor= #FF0000>some text</th></tr> <tr><td bgcolor= #FF0000> some text</td></tr>]]></string>

and put it into the TextView as:


but after run application, displayed text in TextView is not formatted.


Android TextView doesn’t support the Table tag and that’s the reason you can’t see it in a formatted way. You must use a WebView for this purpose.

To know what are the tags supported check this Html List tag not working in android textview. what can i do?
