Curved Text in Android using Jetpack Compose
In Android, there are no inbuilt schemes to implement designed text like the word art, which is available in applications like MS Word. We can always refer to or download such schemes like designed font faces to implement designed text. However, it is also possible to natively build (building from scratch) such designed texts in an Android Project.
So in this article, we will show you how you could create a Curved Text in Android using Jetpack Compose. Follow the below steps once the IDE is ready.
Step by Step Implementation
Step 1: Create a New Project in Android Studio
To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. While choosing the template, select Empty Compose Activity. If you do not find this template, try upgrading the Android Studio to the latest version. We demonstrated the application in Kotlin, so make sure you select Kotlin as the primary language while creating a New Project.
Step 2: Working with the MainActivity.kt file
Go to the MainActivity.kt file and refer to the following code. Below is the code for the MainActivity.kt file. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.
In the below screenshot of the application, you can see that the text that we entered inside the program has followed a curved path.
