android – NextFocusDown doesn't work with AutoCompleteTextView

Questions:

I’m trying to focus on the next edit text after the user fills one in. The code works absolutely fine with EditText but when I apply it on AutoCompleteTextView, the Next button in the keyboard doesn’t work. The cursor stays where it is.
This is the code I’m using:

<LinearLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:orientation="horizontal"
    android:weightSum="11" >

    <AutoCompleteTextView
        android:id="@+id/etLN"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_weight="3"
        android:ems="10"
        android:nextFocusDown="@+id/etC"
        android:inputType="textPersonName" >

        <requestFocus />
    </AutoCompleteTextView>

    <EditText
        android:id="@id/etC"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_weight="4"
        android:ems="10"
        android:hint="0.0"
        android:nextFocusDown="@+id/etD"
        android:inputType="numberDecimal"
        android:text="" />

    <EditText
        android:id="@id/etD"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_weight="4"
        android:ems="10"
        android:nextFocusDown="@+id/etLN2"
        android:hint="0.0"
        android:inputType="numberDecimal"
        android:text="" />
</LinearLayout>

Please tell me what’s the correct way to do this.
Thanks 🙂

How to&Answers:

add this to your AutoCompleteTextView

android:imeOptions="actionNext"

and it should work.
