OnClick Pop up new window to enter data

Hello,

I currently have a Edit Text on my Android app that I need to be able to click on and another pop up comes up so the user can enter data.

I have a toast box popup, but I would like a  popup so the user can enter the data and then the data gets sent back to the edit text.

The one I have below send the user to another activity. Please help

Thank you
myStockPrice.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
			@Override
			public void onClick(View v) {
				// Click Text Box to Move to Next Activity
                Intent myIntent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(), StockQuoteLkup.class);
                startActivity(myIntent);
			}
		});

Open in new window

I chose to imbed this code instead.

        // Click on Stock Price to bring up dialog box
        myStockPrice.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                  
                  @Override
                  public void onClick(View v) {
                        // Click button to Move to Next Activity
                //Intent myIntent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(), StockQuoteLkup.class);
                //startActivity(myIntent);
               
                final AlertDialog.Builder alert = new AlertDialog.Builder(OptionsPricingCalculatorActivity.this);
                    final EditText input = new EditText(OptionsPricingCalculatorActivity.this);
                    alert.setView(input);
                    alert.setPositiveButton("Ok", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                          public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton) {
                                String value = input.getText().toString().trim();
                                
                                //Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), value,
                                            //Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                          }
                    });

                    alert.setNegativeButton("Cancel",
                                new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                                      public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton) {
                                            dialog.cancel();
                                      }
                                });
                    alert.show();
               
                  }
            });

Thank you, Perfect functionality, now I just have to implement into my application :)

I see the openDialogButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() which opens the dialog activity when clicked.

How do I do this when I click the edit text box?

myStockPrice = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.txtStockPrice);

        myStockPrice.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
                  @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                showDialog(DIALOG);
            }
            });
