You can't draw a Textview directly, but 2 you can put it in a layout and draw the 1 layout. Something like this:

LinearLayout layout = new LinearLayout(context);

TextView textView = new TextView(context); 
textView.setText("Hello world");

layout.measure(canvas.getWidth(), canvas.getHeight());
layout.layout(0, 0, canvas.getWidth(), canvas.getHeight());

// To place the text view somewhere specific:
//canvas.translate(0, 0);

May be you need to use StaticLayout. It can draw formatted 2 text, manages word wrapping and so on. Have 1 a look at http://developer.android.com/reference/android/text/StaticLayout.html

You need to create a class which will extend 3 Textview. After that override onDraw method. This 2 method provides you to draw your textview 1 tha way you like it
