Android ime options not working

I am trying to set up a listener for the android ime options, that stores the value of the

EditText
in the shared preferences. I have it set up like so, but when I press the "return" key on my keyboard, nothing happens and it never goes into the listener. Any ideas on why I'm doing wrong?

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_settings);

mDone = (Button) findViewById(R.id.done);
mTemperature = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.temperature);

mDone.setOnEditorActionListener(new TextView.OnEditorActionListener() {
@Override
public boolean onEditorAction(TextView v, int actionId, KeyEvent event) {

int action = event.getAction();
if (actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE) {
// Do whatever you want here
SharedPreferences preferences = getSharedPreferences(SHARED_PREFERENCES, Context.MODE_PRIVATE);
SharedPreferences.Editor edit = preferences.edit();

int updateSweater = Integer.parseInt(mTemperature.getText().toString());
edit.remove("sweater");
edit.putInt("sweater", updateSweater);
edit.commit();
preferences.getInt("sweater", 0);

Toast.makeText(SettingsActivity.this, "Sweater Weather Updated", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

Intent intent = new Intent(SettingsActivity.this, MainActivity.class);
startActivity(intent);
return true;
}
return false;
}
});
}


This is how I set up my EditText

<EditText
android:id="@+id/temperature"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textColor="@color/white"
android:textColorHint="@color/gray"
android:textSize="25sp"
android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
android:hint="Farenheit"
android:inputType="phone"
android:imeOptions="actionDone"/>

Answer

I believe it is not working because setOnEditorActionListener should be defined to your EditText (and not to your Button).

mTemperature = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.temperature);

mTemperature.setOnEditorActionListener(new TextView.OnEditorActionListener() {
    @Override
    public boolean onEditorAction(TextView v, int actionId, KeyEvent event) {

        int action = event.getAction();
        if (actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE) {
            // Do whatever you want here
            SharedPreferences preferences = getSharedPreferences(SHARED_PREFERENCES, Context.MODE_PRIVATE);
            SharedPreferences.Editor edit = preferences.edit();

            int updateSweater = Integer.parseInt(mTemperature.getText().toString());
            edit.remove("sweater");
            edit.putInt("sweater", updateSweater);
            edit.commit();
            preferences.getInt("sweater", 0);

            Toast.makeText(SettingsActivity.this, "Sweater Weather Updated", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

            Intent intent = new Intent(SettingsActivity.this, MainActivity.class);
            startActivity(intent);
            return true;
        }
        return false;
    }
});

If you need to take any action after click in mDone, it is better to set a ClickListener to mDone
