How to set fontSize for Text (Jetpack Compose) from res xml?


I have my dimen.xml with all demintions that I use over the app. Now with jetpack compose I would like to use these demintions also here

There is a text:

...
    Text(
        text = stringResource(id = R.string.brandname),
        fontSize = 12.sp
    )
...

I can get text from the resources, however, I can't get 12.sp value from dimen.xml, I am trying to do it like this

...
    Text(
        text = stringResource(id = R.string.brandname),
        fontSize = dimensionResource(id = R.dimen.brandname_size)
    )
...

I got an error in the fontSize line - type mismatch, required TextUnit, found Dp

What am I missing here?


Solution

  • Should just be fontSize = dimensionResource(id = R.dimen.brandname_size).value.sp
