    hi, i am making a simple converter to learn Droid app development but i am having a problem. Here is my code:

    the problem is if the user imputs nothing, the program force closes. i can fix that by setting the SetText value to "0", but then it makes it harder to enter a second value because the 0 is added to the end unless deleted. How can i solve this? I tried: if sDistance != "" then double parse else =0.0 but it didn't work.

    try {
    dDistance = Double.parseDouble(sDistance);
    } catch (NumberFormatException e) {
    dDistance = 0.0;
