Android Development: Simple textbox with submit button

I've created my textbox and my submit button on the main.xml.

I'm trying to store the textbox value (in this case, let's make it someone's name) after hitting the button to a string variable.

Whenever I try to create the entry though, it makes it an integer even though I'm finding it under R.string.someonesname

Any  help?

This is what I have so far:

        Button button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);
    	button.setOnClickListener(new onClick() {
    		@Override
    	   public void onClick(View v) {
    	      // button 1 was clicked!

Open in new window


It's giving me a lot of errors in the way that I'm using it.  It can store the button, no problem, but when I try to set the onclicklistener, that's what it bombs out.

In my tests, I was able to set the textbox value, but the button is not being "clicked" to do anything.

I found the solution only 20 minutes later:

The import won't automatically find the right one, so you have to add:

import android.view.View.OnClickListener;

Then here's the exact working syntax:

        Button button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);
          button.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener()
          {
             public void onClick(View v)
                {
                // button 1 was clicked!
