You need to check that the contents of 't3' is a valid number before attempting to parse it or catch the exception (the former is better)

String s = t3.getText().trim();
n_id = (s.length()==0 ? 0 : Integer.parseInt(s));

sorry:
objects:
>>String s = t3.getText().trim();
>>n_id = (s.length()==0 ? 0 : Integer.parseInt(s));

Below is same as above? (I am not used to that ? format)...Could you clarify?

if(s.length() == 0)
            n_id = Integer.parseInt(s);
        else n_id = 0;

if(s.length() == 0)
  n_id = 0;
else
   n_id = Integer.parseInt(s);

The easiest way to avoid exceptions of any kind would probably be
if ("" + t3.getText().matches("\\d+")) {
    // valid
}
else {
   // don't bother trying
}

If you really want to check if its an int then use the following

expensive operation though and not necessary in your case.
