Android Button needs two click for action


I have a form. 7 EditText in vertical layout. On screen in one moment can see only 3 EditText (form is big so I need to scroll up and down to fill all fields). In bottom – Button.

When I fill top EditText (or one of top, which is invisible when I scrolled down to button), and focus (cursor) in this EditText, when I scrolled down and try to click Button once – nothing happens. when I click again – happens button action.

When both EditText with focus and Button is visible – Button needs one clicks.

I think that in first case first click just takes focus. And second click is "real" click.

How I can fix it? I need only one click on Button.

Best Solution

The question is old and I don't know whether this will solve your problem, since your pastebin link doesn't work anymore, but since I stumbled upon your post with the same problem and I found a solution I will post it anyway:

In my case the problem occured when I applied a custom style to a button following a tutorial:

<style name="ButtonStyle" parent="@android:style/Widget.Holo.Button">
    <item name="android:focusable">true</item>
    <item name="android:focusableInTouchMode">true</item>
    <item name="android:clickable">true</item>
    <item name="android:background">@drawable/custom_button</item>
    <item name="android:textColor">@color/somecolor</item>
    <item name="android:gravity">center</item>

The problem was the following line:

<item name="android:focusableInTouchMode">true</item>

Once I removed it the button worked as expected.

Hope this helps.
