Android getText from EditText field

I have a problem with getting text from

EditText
field to insert it in Email composer with intent. I've declared
EditText
field in layout file (@+id/vnosEmaila):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent">
<TextView
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/navodiloEmail"
android:text="@string/navodiloEmail"
android:textSize="15dip"/>
<EditText
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/vnosEmaila"
android:layout_below="@id/navodiloEmail"/>
<TextView
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/navodiloZadeva"
android:text="@string/navodiloZadeva"
android:layout_below="@id/vnosEmaila"
android:textSize="15dip"/>
<EditText
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/vnosZadeve"
android:layout_below="@id/navodiloZadeva"/>
<TextView
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/navodiloBody"
android:text="@string/navodiloBody"
android:layout_below="@id/vnosZadeve"
android:textSize="15dip"/>
<EditText
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/vnosBody"
android:layout_below="@id/navodiloBody"/>
<Button
android:id="@+id/klicIntentEmail"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="@string/sestaviEmail"
android:onClick="sestaviEmail"
android:layout_below="@id/vnosBody"/>
</RelativeLayout>


The button calls onClick method "sestaviEmail" and I have declared it:

public void sestaviEmail (View view){
CharSequence test = getText(R.id.vnosEmaila);
Toast toast = Toast.makeText(EmailGumb.this, test, Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
toast.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER, 0, 0);
toast.show();
}


I'm just showing it with Toast because it's faster but everytime I try to get text from field I get "false". All other questions that I've found had code which declared Button in methods and not in layout, maybe this is a part of the problem?

Answer
