Hi,

This is for an Android App.

I have some TextViews that I want to change the text of if a value in a certain textEdit is >1

I also have a textWatcher that looks for changed value in the textEdit.

only the tipTextView changes but nothing else. Any clue why?

I have made the references to the fields.
      tipTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.tipTextView); 
      totalTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.totalTextView);
      tipCustomTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.tipCustomTextView);
      totalCustomTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.totalCustomTextView);

Open in new window


I have created a method to update the text fields when value >1
   private void updateTextFields()
   {
	   
	   if (numGuests >1) {
		   tipTextView.setText("Split Tip");
		   totalTextView.setText("Split Total");
		   tipCustomTextView.setText("Split Tip");
		   totalCustomTextView.setText("Split Total");
	   }else
		   tipTextView.setText(tipText);
	   	   totalTextView.setText(totalText);
	       tipCustomTextView.setText(tipText);
	       totalCustomTextView.setText(totalText);
		   
   }

I noticed that if I make the text in the "else" part "SPLIT TIP" it will work if the value is >1 but not in the regular If part.

Ok, if I do this, it works - What is the best way to combine this as 1 statement?

   {
	   
	   if (numGuests >1) {
		   tipTextView.setText("Split Tip");

	   }else
		   tipTextView.setText("Tip");

		   

   if (numGuests >1) {
	   totalTextView.setText("Split Total");

   }else
   	   totalTextView.setText("Total");

	   
}
