How to Make EditText Box Height Expand

Here is my layout:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:orientation="vertical" >

<EditText
android:id="@+id/etTweetReview"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginBottom="10dp"
android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
android:layout_marginRight="10dp"
android:ems="10"
android:hint="Discuss up to 140 characters"
android:imeOptions="actionDone"
android:inputType="textCapSentences"
android:lines="2"
android:maxLength="140"
android:paddingBottom="10dp"
android:singleLine="false" />

<Button
android:id="@+id/theReviewBarButton"
android:layout_width="200dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal"
android:layout_marginBottom="5dp"
android:text="Submit Review"
android:textSize="22sp" />

<Spinner
android:id="@+id/spinnerSort"
android:layout_width="120dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
android:layout_marginRight="5dp" />

<ListView
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/android:list"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
android:scrollbars="none"
android:layout_marginRight="5dp"
android:layout_marginTop="8dp" >
</ListView>

</LinearLayout>


When that EditText box gets to the end, I want it to wrap to the next line. Right now, it just keeps going right moving everything left off screen.

Already asked and answered previously.

Android Word-Wrap EditText text

Example XML code:

<EditText
    android:id="@+id/edtInput"
    android:layout_width="0dip"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_weight="1"
    android:hint="@string/compose_hint"
    android:inputType="textCapSentences|textMultiLine"
    android:maxLength="2000"
    android:maxLines="4" />
