Default ToDo list in ch-2

Hi Wrox,

Your Book "Professional Android Application Development" is really very interesting..
and for starters you have explained clearly all the basics required to understand Android Development..
I'm very very new to Android Development..

I have some prob with ToDolist..
I am just posting code snippet here..
Can you plz help me out where i'm going wrong...

package com.todo;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import android.app.ListActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.KeyEvent;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.ListView;
import android.view.View.OnKeyListener; 

public class ToDoList extends ListActivity {
	/** Called when the activity is first created. */
	public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

		ListView myListView = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.myListView);
		final EditText myEditText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.myEditText);

		final ArrayList<String> todoItems = new ArrayList<String>();		
		final ArrayAdapter<String> aryAdapter;
		aryAdapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
				android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, todoItems);		
		myEditText.setOnKeyListener(new OnKeyListener() {
			public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
				if (event.getAction() == KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN)
					if (keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_DPAD_CENTER) {
						todoItems.add(0, myEditText.getText().toString());
						return true;
				return false;
and xml file is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical" >

        android:text="@string/txt_list" />

        android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

when i execute this in emulator i get a msg as:
"Unexpectedly TO-Do has stopped"

and logcat shows as follows:
