private String mParam2;

private OnFragmentInteractionListener mListener;

public ScanFragment() {
// Required empty public constructor
}

/**

fragment.setArguments(args);
return fragment;
}

@Override

super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

}



@Override
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// Inflate the layout for this fragment
return inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_scan, container, false);
}

// TODO: Rename method, update argument and hook method into UI event
public void onButtonPressed(Uri uri) {

mListener.onFragmentInteraction(uri);
}
}

@Override
public void onAttach(Context context) {
super.onAttach(context);
try {
mListener = (OnFragmentInteractionListener) context;
} catch (ClassCastException e) {
throw new ClassCastException(context.toString()
+ " must implement OnFragmentInteractionListener");
}
}

@Override
public void onDetach() {
super.onDetach();
mListener = null;
}

//DB
private DbManager db=null;
private CursorAdapter adapter;
String date = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").format(new Date());

public void onButtonClick(View view){
//do something when button is clicked.
EditText txt=(EditText) view.findViewById(R.id.textSearch);
if (txt.length()>0 && date.length()>0)
{
db.save(txt.getEditableText().toString(), date);
adapter.changeCursor(db.query());
}
}


}

If I declare the method "onButtonClick" on MainActivity.java the following traceback disappear but I receive another traceback regarding the "txt.length" cannot be null.
Where is my mistake? thanks

Answer

First of all, the onClick method should be present in the parent activity, so that's why the error ain't coming in case you move the code to the activity class

OR

If you want to have it in your fragment then you'll have to initialize the button in fragment and set the onClickListener for it, something like this :

@Override
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
        Bundle savedInstanceState) {

   View view = inflater.inflate(R.layout. fragment_scan,
    container, false);
   Button button = (Button) view.findViewById(R.id.btn_scansiona);
   button.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener()
   {
             @Override
             public void onClick(View v)
             {
                // do something
             } 
   }); 
   return view;
}

and you're getting txt.length() can't be null error because :

  • You've defined txt as your EditText and it's not the text inside it. You'll have to fetch the text and convert it to String like this :
    • txt.getText().toString()

then you can do your normal processing like this :

txt.getText().toString().length()
