[Android SDK] Non-editable EditText the right way

I’ve wasted plenty of time doing trial-and-error with incorrect solutions for a non-editable EditText. This one works fine on all my devices:


<style name=”NonEditableEditText” parent=”FullW”>
<item name=”android:inputType”>none</item>
<item name=”android:editable”>false</item>

“FullW” just defines layout_width and layout_height properties.

Have a nice coding day! 🙂
