Hi Gurus,

I have some critical issue related to height of TextView. I want to set the height of the TextView based on the content which is set at runtime.

Here is my xml code:-
 < TextView
android:layout_height="wrap_content"/ >

Here is the java code to set the height of the TextView:-

TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(;
int height_in_pixels = tv.getLineCount() * tv.getLineHeight();

But the problem is; it displays only 1 line, and not the rest of the lines.
