Hi All, I am not an expert in Java and i'm rather new to Android development as well. I am unable to extract the double value from a string... here is my code.. Code (Text): String str; double amount; final EditText txtAmount = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.entryAmount); str = txtAmount.getText().toString(); amount = (double)str; // amount = parseDouble(str); I tried to cast by (double) and tried parseDouble. None of my trials are working. Can you help? Regards Joe Is it a wrong location. Now I think I should posted a level below. But not able to remove !!
