I have 4 buttons and 1 TextView. I want each of the buttons to add or subtract a different amount from the value (parsed to int) in the TextView. When I click on one of the buttons it throws fatal errors (listed below). I've searched some other Stackoverflow discussions and nothing seems to be working. Here is my current activity:

public class PaydownSnowball extends Activity {
int aAmt;
String debtExtraPayment;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.snowball);

    final Button plusTen = (Button) findViewById(R.id.buttonp10);
    final Button plusFive = (Button) findViewById(R.id.buttonp5);
    final Button minusFive = (Button) findViewById(R.id.buttonm5);
    final Button minusTen = (Button) findViewById(R.id.buttonm10);

    SharedPreferences sharedPref= getSharedPreferences("chaosdatasnowball", 0);
    debtExtraPayment = sharedPref.getString("debtExtraPayment", null);
    debtExtraPayment ="0";
    TextView addAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.dispAddAmt);
    addAmount.setText(debtExtraPayment);
    aAmt = Integer.parseInt(debtExtraPayment);


    plusTen.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
          aAmt = aAmt + 10;
          TextView addAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.dispAddAmt);
          addAmount.setText(aAmt);
        }
      });
    plusFive.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
          aAmt = aAmt + 5;
          TextView addAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.dispAddAmt);
          addAmount.setText(aAmt);
        }
      });
    minusTen.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
          aAmt = aAmt - 10;
          TextView addAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.dispAddAmt);
          addAmount.setText(aAmt);
        }
      });
    minusFive.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
          aAmt = aAmt - 5;
          TextView addAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.dispAddAmt);
          addAmount.setText(aAmt);
        }
      });


    debtExtraPayment = String.valueOf(aAmt);
    addAmount.setText(debtExtraPayment);

    SharedPreferences.Editor editor= sharedPref.edit();
    editor.putString("debtExtraPayment", debtExtraPayment).commit();
}

Here are the logcats that occur on click of the plusFive button:

Solution 1

The problem is with lines like this

addAmount.setText(aAmt);

where aAmt is an int. This looks for a resource with the id of whatever aAmt is. You need to cast it to a String first like

addAmount.setText(String.valueOf(aAmt));

There are overloaded setText() methods. See the docs

This post goes into some more detail as to how this actually works

Solution 2

You can Try one of these two:

  1. addAmount.setText("" + aAmt);
  2. addAmount.setText(String.valueOf(aAmt));

you'll get a String result without any error.
