Default Typo?

First, thank you for a great book! I wanted to learn Android over the weekends I have free and feel this is an excellent book. I am working through the examples of the book. I am in Chapter 2--ToDoList. I looked at your code example and used my code. I compared my project setup, the version of the Android SDK, and the actual code. I did not see any configuration differences.

 ListView myListView = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.MyListView);
 final EditText myEditText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.MyEditText);
Note the captialization difference for the paramemter in the findViewById method.

Hi Russ,

Thanks, hope you find the book useful!

I'm not sure exactly where you're seeing the problem -- capitalization in the code snippet you show needs to match the capitalization you use in the main.xml layout file (step 6). In the book they both start with lowercase 'm' -- but it'll work just as well if you choose to make the uppercase in both the layout and the code.

Unless I've misunderstood?
