In my android application it automatically focuses the first Button I have in my layout, giving it an orange outline. How can I set the initial focus preferably in XML, and can this be set to nothing?
You could use the
<Button ...> <requestFocus /> </Button>
I find it odd though that it auto-focuses one of your buttons, I haven't observed that behavior in any of my views.
@Someone Somewhere, I tried all of the above to no avail. The fix I found is from http://www.helloandroid.com/tutorials/remove-autofocus-edittext-android . Basically, you need to create an invisible layout just above the problematic Button:
<LinearLayout android:focusable="true" android:focusableInTouchMode="true" android:layout_width="0px" android:layout_height="0px" > <requestFocus /> </LinearLayout>
