http://stackoverflow.com – This is my EditText: <EditText android:id="@+id/note" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" android:layout_centerVertical="true" android:gravity="center" android:cursorVisible="false" android:inputType="textMultiLine" android:lines="25" android:scrollHorizontally="false" android:hint="Type note here" /> The position of the hint is in the center and I have achieved that using android:gravity="center".
