 Good you learn't something from Trek :)

specify *android*:theme="@*android*:style/*Theme.Light*" in the manifest
file for preference activity instead of changing backgorund color.

Hi friends,

How can I know the length of the each character of word.

Actually, I am trying some thing like this:

I will show some set of lines on the screen. Later after some time, I
would like to set the color to each character in the line at a
frequent interval.

Here I am drawing the txt on canvas c:

            p = new paint();
            p.setXfermode(new PorterDuffXfermode
            c.drawText("some data",x,y,p);

here c and p are Canvas and Paint respectively.

Now I want to set the color to each and every character of the drawn

How can I achieve this.

Please help me.
