Hi...new to Android development, trying to implement my first app, a tip calculator, and having some issues.
First of all, in my EditText fields, the cursor defaults to the left of whatever text is entered. I have been unable to find any resource that indicates how to orient the cursor relative to the entered text. Alternatively, I wouldn't mind hiding the cursor. Could someone indicate how to handle either of these things?
Secondly, the app is crashing ("application has quit unexpectedly") if I try to use .getText() on an EditText object which does not have any text entered. What is the safe method for checking whether or not an EditText object contains text?
