This works for both XML and Java layouts. You can then reference this asset from your layout files using the syntax @font/myFont .
You can also load fonts programmatically by creating a Typeface object and passing it into setTypeface() on TextView or EditText . However, this method requires more code than adding an asset. If you are loading multiple fonts at once, I recommend using the AssetManager class instead of doing everything manually with Typeface objects.
The following sections will go over all three methods: assets, programmatic loading and manual loading via Typefaces
