Linkify Phone-numbers using Regex


I am trying to linkify phonenumbers using regular expressions, but i cant manage to apply it on my setText();

I've googled alot and it feels like im really close to success.

The code i got :

if(tag.equals("Customer")) { String name = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[0].trim()); String number = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[1].trim()); String SSNumber = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[2].trim()); String Address = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[3].trim()); String Postcode = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[4].trim()); String City = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[5].trim()); String Phone = "Phone#: " + xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[6].trim()); String Cell = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[7].trim()); String Email = xpp.getAttributeValue(null, separated_nodes[8].trim()); // text.setText("Network "+xpp.getAttributeValue(null, "Name")); Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("[0]{1}[0-9]{6,15}"); Linkify.addLinks(text, pattern, "Phone#: "); //Linkify.addLinks(text, pattern, xmlstring); //Linkify.addLinks(text, pattern, Phone); text.setText("Customer: \nName: " + name +"\n" + "Customer Number: "+ number + "\n" + "Social Security Number: "+ SSNumber +"\n" + "Address: "+ Address +"\n" + "Postal Code: "+ Postcode +"\n" + "City: "+ City +"\n" + ""+ Phone +"\n" + "Cellphone#: "+ Cell +"\n" + "e-mail: "+ Email +"\n"); Linkify.addLinks(text, Linkify.EMAIL_ADDRESSES) ; }

As you see, ive tried multiple ways to linkify Phone and Cellphone-number.

I think the RegEx is correct.


<ol><li>you need to call Linkify.addLinks() AFTER you have set up your text view, you're doing it before</li> <li>Doesn't Linkify already support phone numbers, e.g. Linkify.addLinks(text, Linkify.EMAIL_ADDRESSES | Linkify.PHONE_NUMBERS)?</li> </ol>


Also, in here: Linkify.addLinks(text, pattern, "Phone#: "); the third argument is supposed to be the Scheme, "Phone#:" is NOT a valid scheme. It should be tel:.


Unfortunately, the call to

Linkify.addLinks(text, Linkify.EMAIL_ADDRESSES)

on the last line is wiping out the Spannables that previous calls to Linkify.addLinks() created. See the <a href="http://developer.android.com/reference/android/text/util/Linkify.html#addLinks%28android.text.Spannable,%20int%29" rel="nofollow">Linkify Documentation</a>
