    hi @RobertBruce, thanks for the solution. the first one worked flawlesly. however, i got an erros saying, Resource.Styleable doesn't contain a definition for CustomFonts. maybe is as a result of accessibility on my side. i created the attrs file and kept it in my Drawables folder. is that were it's supposed to be?

    kk, i changed the folder of the attrs.xml to the resources/values folder and the error went away but after implementing the view, the text doesn't change dynamically

    here is what i tried

    < xmlns:android="" xmlns:cardview="" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" cardview:cardBackgroundColor="@color/textcolor" cardview:cardCornerRadius="10dp" cardview:cardPreventCornerOverlap="false" cardview:cardUseCompatPadding="true" android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal"> <LinearLayout xmlns:foo="" android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:padding="5dp" android:layout_weight="20" android:id="@+id/quote" android:gravity="center"> <appiness.customFontsForTextView android:id="@+id/quoteText" android:gravity="center" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:text="This is some random quote spoken by a true arabian" android:textColor="@color/grey" android:textSize="26sp" foo:customFont="fonts/fabfeltscript-bold.otf" android:layout_centerVertical="true" android:layout_alignParentRight="true" android:layout_alignParentEnd="true" /> </LinearLayout> </>
    my fonts re placed in the assets/fonts folder
