As a average modern programer, I started by looking on the internet, but didn't find anything. I imagine I didn't search the right sites ( no comments on this please ! )
So this is what I came up with :
public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent event)
EditText NameView = (EditText ) editEntryView.findViewById( R.id.PlayerName );
String Name = NameView.getText().toString();
if ( Name.length() >= 8 )
if ( keyCode != KeyEvent.KEYCODE_DEL )
I imagine that there are many things that should be cleaner here, but, hey !, it works, and that so good for me !
I fought for some time, because I was looking for a way to call a parent method when I didn't treat the case and decided to pass for this letter.
Actually, the behaviour is just the opposite :
if you return true, it means you dealed with the entry, so the treatment will stop here.
if you return false, it means you didn't deal with the entry, so it will be passed to the next listener.
Actually, a classic listener pattern !
Next thing : enter as a ok-click entry !
