TextWatcher

public interface TextWatcher implements NoCopySpan

When an object of a type is attached to an Editable, its methods will be called when the text is changed.

Public Method Summary

abstract void
afterTextChanged(Editable s)
This method is called to notify you that, somewhere within s, the text has been changed.
abstract void
beforeTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int count, int after)
This method is called to notify you that, within s, the count characters beginning at start are about to be replaced by new text with length after.
abstract void
onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count)
This method is called to notify you that, within s, the count characters beginning at start have just replaced old text that had length before.

Public Methods

public abstract void afterTextChanged (Editable s)

This method is called to notify you that, somewhere within s, the text has been changed. It is legitimate to make further changes to s from this callback, but be careful not to get yourself into an infinite loop, because any changes you make will cause this method to be called again recursively. (You are not told where the change took place because other afterTextChanged() methods may already have made other changes and invalidated the offsets. But if you need to know here, you can use setSpan(Object, int, int, int) in onTextChanged(CharSequence, int, int, int) to mark your place and then look up from here where the span ended up.

Parameters
s

public abstract void beforeTextChanged (CharSequence s, int start, int count, int after)

This method is called to notify you that, within s, the count characters beginning at start are about to be replaced by new text with length after. It is an error to attempt to make changes to s from this callback.

Parameters
s
start
count
after

public abstract void onTextChanged (CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count)

This method is called to notify you that, within s, the count characters beginning at start have just replaced old text that had length before. It is an error to attempt to make changes to s from this callback.

Parameters
