I have a mysql database which stores text, however i want to use a certain sequence to do emoticons, like
Mark: haha , and map to the smiley face picture. i have some gifs that i have been trying to mess around already. Right now i have the data being pulled through android and pushed into a TextView, the spaces for the images are replaced by small boxes, as i have the smileys replaced by <img src='smile.gif' /> in the text, the images are on a remote server by the way. I want to know if its because of the data being pushed into a TextView why the images are not loaded or some other reason, any help will be appreciated.
