mistake? EditText petNameField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.petNameField); String petName = petNameField + " " ;
Hi, I'm new to android, Cannot find where is my mistake in this exercise
EditText petNameField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.petNameField); String petName = petNameField + " " ;
We'll use two methods, chained together (one after another) to get the text from the petNameField and then convert the retrieved value to a String (since EditText data cannot naturally be stored in a String, we must convert the data to String for our statement to do its job.)
EditText petNameField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.petNameField); String petName = petNameField.getText().toString();
Hope this helps!
