Save Filed

I've attached the code. I'm having 2 problems with it.

The code shows the onClick method. Every time I click on th save button, I want a new file to be created and saved on the SD card, and then in the txtInput to display all the files on the SD card.

1st problem. Every time I click the save button, it seems to overwrite the existing file because it only shows one file in the txtInput as a result.

2nd problem. It shows the wrong file name in the txtInput results. If the 1st sentence I typed was "This is a test", then the filename was suppose to be This_0.wav, which is what the text box shows for the results. The next time I type a different sentence. "Type text here". The filename is suppose to be Type_0.wav, but it's not. It's still showing This_0.wav.

Hi InfoTechEE,

1st problem. Every time I click the save button, it seems to overwrite the existing file because it only shows one file in the txtInput as a result.
In this for loop every time you are setting
for(int j=0;j<mfile.listFiles().length;j++){
      txtInput.setText(list[j].getAbsolutePath() + " " + saveText.substring(0, spacePosotion));
}
Here every time you are setting a new text. So it will display only one file name that is the last file in the array  list.

If you want to see all the files in the /sdcard use following code. It will display each file in single line.

StringBuilder lBuilder = new StringBuilder();
for(int j=0;i<mfile.listFiles().length;j++){
  lBuilder.add(list[j].getAbsolutePath() + " " + saveText.substring(0, spacePosotion) +"\n");
}
txtInput.setText(lBuilder.toString());


2)nd problem. It shows the wrong file name in the txtInput results.

Here also same problem....It will always display the last file name,,,,
