You simply need to use a TextView Control in Android, and set its property “Auto Link” to Web etc. For example:
This is TextView with a launchable URL text:
Another more interesting and easier approach is to use Linkify class in Android. This class can automatically read the content of TextView, and automatically create the link based on the content of the Text. For example, it will read phone number and generate a phone number link you can launch, it will read URL and generate a URL link you can run the browser on, it will also generate email link for text that looks like email.
TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.about_content); tv.setText(Html.fromHtml(AboutText)); Linkify.addLinks(tv, Linkify.ALL);
