Questions:

I have an edittext for reply to email. i want to give three properties for edittext like Multiline, First character caps and disable word suggestions.
I gave like this in xml…

android:inputType="textCapSentences|textVisiblePassword"

I tried in code also… etMessage.setInputType(InputType.TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_MULTI_LINE|InputType.TYPE_TEXT_FLAG_CAP_SENTENCES);
I am not able to give multiline….how can i achieve this

thanks

How to&Answers:

I found solution for this problem

Just set the following parameters in xml file..

android:inputType="textCapSentences|textVisiblePassword"
These are for setting first letter of sentence to caps and disable suggestions

and write following code in ur Activity

edittext.setSingleLine(false);

Answer:

Try setting android:inputType="textMultiLine|textCapSentences|textVisiblePassword". What might be happening is that it is multiline but only one line is currently shown, in which you could say android:minLines="5" or so.
