FAQs

EditText is a user interface control in Android that allows the user to enter or change text. When using the EditText control in our Android applications, we must use the inputType attribute to describe the type of data that the text field can receive.

EditTexts are a type of text input that allows the user to enter text in a mobile app. They are often used for text entry fields such as search bar, address bar, and username field.

Types of EditTexts:

  • Search Bar EditText: This is the most common type of EditText. It is used to search for content on an app or website.
  • Address Bar EditText: This is mainly used to enter an address in order to navigate to it.
  • Username Field EditText: This is mainly used in social media apps where you can use this field to sign up for an account.

To update the text inside an EditText, you must use the setText() method. If you pass in a string, then it will update the text to that string. If you pass in a reference to another EditText, then it will replace the text inside that EditText with whatever is inside of your other EditText.

If you want to change only one character in an EditText, then you can use setText(char) and pass in a single character as the argument. For example:

  • settext('Hello');
  • settext('H')
