Here is the scenario I have a form (linear layout with a few EditText's) that I have slide over the main screen. The editText seem normal, and have default text inside of them ("username" & "password") when i click the editText, a cursor blinks like normal. I can hit backspace and a letter is deleted but when I type nothing shows up and the cursor disappears. The focus goes to the editText I have on the main screen (behind it) and what i typed is there. If I remove the editText on the main screen, and try to type on the editText on the form, the cursor disappears and focus is given to something on the main screen (a tab). I have 0 clue why this is happening or how to fix it. Any help would be much appreciated.
