Removing space from Edit Text String

In my android app, I am getting the String from an Edit Text and using it as a parameter to call a web service and fetch JSON data.
Now, the method I use for getting the String value from Edit Text is like this :

final EditText edittext = (EditText) findViewById(;

String k = edittext.getText().toString();

Now normally it works fine, but if we the text in Edit Text contains space then my app crashes.

for eg. - if someone types "food" in the Edit Text Box, then it's OK
but if somebody types "Indian food" it crashes.

How to remove spaces and get just the String ?


Isn't that just Java?

String k = edittext.getText().toString().replace(' ', '');
