setText on EditText and TextView not working


We have a bigger Android 2.1 project, and for some reason, only at two places calling `setText()` on an `EditText` or a `TextView` object just doesn't work. It does not crashes, does not throw an exception, only the `TextView`/`EditText` is not updating.

Here's the code for setting the text:

  1. EditText etzip_a = (EditText)activity.findViewById(;
  2. etzip.setText(;
  3. etzip.addTextChangedListener(new onInputChanged(120));

  • this code runs on the GUI thread
  • it parses the `` object successfully from the layout
  • a totally similar code for other tens of `EditText` are working fine

Does anybody encountered a problem like this?
