Change Notification bar tickertext typeface

Postby jacobram » Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:12 pm

Hi android developers,

Is it possible to change the typeface in the Notification bar?

Notification notification = new Notification(R.drawable.icon, TEXT, System.currentTimeMillis());

I want to change the typeface of "TEXT". I asked this because I need to change the text into Tamil langauge.
(e.g. விளையாட்டு). When I try to display this it only shows series of rectangles. I am using english as my phone language.

Thanks in advance!

Hi jacobram,

I haven't tried it but here is a discussion of custom notifications:
