Hello,

I'm working on some tests and i would like to be sure that in my NiceActivity there is four buttons that are displayed.
In this activity i also have textEdit view.

I'd like to separete - count - my buttons in a test but when i try to check if a view is a button I can not pass my test.


Here 's my method :
commented are two test that didnot work. In my debug i can see that the v.getClass().getSimpleName() is "Button" but if I compare it to "Button" i receive false.....help ;)




private ArrayList<Button> GetOnlyButtonsOutOfLayout(LinearLayout aLinlayout) {
        ArrayList<Button> response = new ArrayList<Button>();
        int childcount = aLinlayout.getChildCount();
        Log.i(_className, "fils de layout: " + childcount);

        for (int i=0; i < childcount; i++){
            View v = aLinlayout.getChildAt(i);
            //if(v.getClass().getSimpleName().toString() == "Button" ){
            //if(v.getClass().getSimpleName() == Button.class.getSimpleName() ){
            Log.i(_className, v.getClass().getSimpleName());
            if(v.getClass().getSimpleName() == "Button"){
                response.add((Button) v);
            }
        }
        return response;
    }


my response is always empty.

how can i do this.

thank you in advance for your help.
