How to capture onclick event in disabled EditText in Android App

I have a EditText which I am presenting as disabled so that user cannot edit the contents and also to avoid popping-up keyboard. But now I want to capture onclick event in the EditText and identify the individual words that are being clicked.
Any help is most welcome.

Thanks,
Balkrishna.

Answer

On your EditText set attributes android:focusable="false" and android:enabled="true". And set OnClickListener to that EditText. The click on that Edittext triggers the onClick() method but it can't be edited. I just tried it.
