Description t9mike 2012-09-28 19:52:37 UTC
android:textIsSelectable="true" is used to make text copyable and fairly important property. I could not find it in the Designer. (I know how to hand edit)
Comment 1 Lluis Sanchez 2012-10-02 05:02:56 UTC
This property was added in Android 3.0. The most likely cause for this property not showing up is that the target framework for your project is set to a version older than 3.0. To fix it, double click on the project to open the project options dialog, and in Build -> General change the target framework to 3.0 or upper. After that, the property should show up in the Behavior panel of the property pad.

I have had 3.0 as target framework and even changed to 4.0 and don't see it in Properties. Please see new screen shots.

You have to change the target framework in the Build -> General options panel.

Ahh, thanks (as hits head on desk). Is there a document that describes differences between:

   Build->General->Target Framework
   Build->MfA Application->Target Android version
