Text in TextView fades out when scrolling

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm using a text view to show some in-app logging statements. The old code I had placed a text view inside of a scroll view, but I was having some memory issues so I removed the scroll view. I set up the text view like this: this.setText(text); this.setMovementMethod(new ScrollingMovementMethod()); This allows me to scroll through the text, but the text fades out when scrolling. It's white text on a black background and it fades out to a very dark grey. Once I release my finger the text color comes back, but I would prefer for it to not fade out at all. I also get a LogCat statement of: (HowTos)
