How do you set text and trigger onItemClick() of an autoCompleteTextView?

    Code (Text):
    1.  autoCompleteTextViewFreqFunction.setText(function);
    3.             autoCompleteTextViewFreqFunction.performCompletion();
    This successfully selects the text I want.

    The problem is, I have some code that needs to be run after an item is selected and I am unsure how to go about it.

    I can call code when an item is clicked, but not with performCompletion(). Id there a way to listen to that?
    Code (Text):
    3.         autoCompleteTextViewFreqFunction.setOnItemClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {
    4.             @Override
    5.             public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> adapterView, View view, int i, long l) {
    6.                 if(arrayAdapterFreq.getItem(i).toString().contentEquals(getResources().getString(R.string.Constant)))
    7.                     // setUp GUI
    8.                 }
    9.             }
    10.         });
    11.         textInputLayoutFreqFunction.requestFocus();
    12.     }
    I could call onItemClick() explicitly, but how do I get the id of the text that was set?

    My work around was to put the setUpGUI code in another method I could call both from the Listener and the Activity.
