How can i get just the id which is

Answer Source

You should write your code a s

ArrayList<View> allTouchables = ((RelativeLayout) findViewById(;
for (View view : allTouchables) {

As above code returns all touchable views present into given container, you should also check about the type of view like

ArrayList<View> allTouchables = ((RelativeLayout) findViewById(;
for (View touchable : allTouchables) {
   // To check if touchable view is button or not
    if( touchable instanceof Button) {

To get string representation of id, you can write

String idString = view.getResources().getResourceEntryName(view.getId());
