Default Set text hint problem

I'm fairly new to Android development and I've just been going through the android development tutorials for help, but I'm stuck on this.

[HIGH]protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

Intent intent = getIntent();
String message = intent.getStringExtra(MainActivity.EXTRA_MESSAGE);
EditText editText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.edit_message);

EditText.setHint(message);

setContentView(R.layout.activity_list);
}[/HIGH]

My app includes a search bar. In the first activity the user types into it what they are looking for. What I am currently trying to do is try to change the text hint to the message string. This string contains what the user typed in the previous search bar. Any ideas?
