I'm working on a little personal todo list app and so far everything has been working quite well. There is one little quirk I'd like to figure out. Whenever I go to add a new item, I have a Dialog with an EditText view showing inside. When I select the EditText view, the keyboard comes up to enter text, as it should. In most applications, the default seems to be that the shift key is held for the first letter... although it does not do this for my view. There has to be a simple way to fix, but I've searched the reference repeatedly and cannot find it. I'm thinking there has to be an xml attribute for the reference loaded by the Adapter, but I can't find out what it is.
Statically (i.e. in your layout XML file): set
android:inputType="textCapSentences" on your
Programmatically: you have to include
InputType.TYPE_CLASS_TEXT in the
InputType of the
EditText editor = new EditText(this); editor.setInputType(InputType.TYPE_CLASS_TEXT | InputType.TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_CAP_SENTENCES);
Can be combined with text and its variations to request capitalization of the first character of every sentence.
android:inputType="textCapWords" in your EditText element.
<EditText android:id="@+id/txtName" android:layout_width="0dp" android:layout_height="40dp" android:layout_weight="0.7" android:inputType="textCapWords" android:textColorHint="#aaa" android:hint="Name Surname" android:textSize="12sp" />
