So my app needs to read text from a text box with a tag of "inText" do stuff to it (that stuff works) then write the output to a box with the id of "outView". I've been doing this with setText() and getText().
setText() was for writing the output below is what I used:
String mEdit = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.inText.getText()).toString();
You set the
setText() method in wrong place.
setText() are methods of TextView and EditText classes.
But here you used it as a method of id. That's why it's showing "Can't resolve method getText/setText()". As id has no such methods.
You can do the following.
String mEdit = ((EditText) findViewById(R.id.inText)).getText().toString();
