AndroidMobile DevelopmentApps/Applications

This example demonstrates about How to use charAt() in Android text view.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   android:orientation="vertical"
   android:gravity="center"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <EditText
      android:id="@+id/name"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:hint="Enter name"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
   <Button
      android:id="@+id/click"
      android:text="Click"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/textview"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:textSize="25sp"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken the name as Edit text, when user clicks on the button it will take data and find 5th character.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.myapplication;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   EditText name;
   Button button;
   TextView text;

   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      name = findViewById(R.id.name);
      button = findViewById(R.id.click);
      text = findViewById(R.id.textview);
      button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            if (!name.getText().toString().isEmpty()) {
               if (name.getText().toString().length() >= 5) {
                  char ch = name.getText().toString().charAt(5);
                  text.setText("5 th character is " + String.valueOf(ch));
               }
            } else {
               name.setError("Plz enter name");
            }
         }
      });
   }
}

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen −

In the above result, we got the 5th character as M because index starts from 0th position.
