Thanks for your reply, but that's not what I'm looking for. What I meant to say by "(regardless of the application)" is that i would like to capture a system-wide broadcast which occurs when the EditText/TextView gets focus whether the application is written by me, or by someone else (3rd party app).
An example would be an application such as "Swipe". If you've ever used that app, you know that once the app is enabled, whenever the user clicks inside an EditText or TextView, the "Swipe" keyboard pops up instead of the android keyboard. So how does the Swipe app know that the user just clicked inside the EditText / TextView?
