Cry Button onClick setText causes Crash ?

Hi there. I am trying to set the Text of a Text View when a button is clicked.

I have been struggling, because the variable will increment, but If i put the code in to set the text, it crashes the app ?

Here is my code when it crashes:

package com.example.test;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class Game extends Activity{

Button spam;
TextView timeleft, score;
public int points = 0;
public int finalscore = 0;

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

spam = (Button) findViewById(;
timeleft = (TextView) findViewById(;
score = (TextView) findViewById(;

spam.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(View v) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
score.setText(points); // this is the line that crashes the app
however if I comment out the line
, the app doesnt crash, but it doesnt do anything then.

Please can someone help me!
