How can i make a text highlighter [letter by letter] with timer

Hello Everyone

How can i make a text highlighter [letter by letter] for a label component with timer

for example , each 500 millisecond it highlight first letter then second letter till the end of a line or till a bracket ( ) then starts again after the bracket and so on ?

I tried this extension but it didn't work fine

[ com.apphelper.highlighttext.aix ]

looking forward for your help , thank you all.

Set label's HTML to true



Brilliant solution Dora! :trophy:

it's weird that it works on real device android [ 11 ] but on koplayer emulator [ 4.4.4 ] it doesn't

anyway thank you so much for this great solution.

The emulator may not understand HTML?

no i don't think so because i already tested <font> tag for increasing and decreasing the text and it works fine , but probably (style background-color) isn't supported on that emulator.
