Needing to double click EditText for click listener to respond

Tags: , , , ,

I have a section of code where I want to change the text showing in a textView when the user selects an EditText box.

The problem I am having is that the textView only changes when I double click the EditText box, one click and there is no change to the textView.

Is there another click listener that I should be using?

final EditText box0105 = (EditText)findViewById(;
final TextView txtHint = (TextView)findViewById(;
        box0105.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {


Try setting OnTouchListener rather than OnClickListener
