Java – android EditText maxLength not working

androidandroid-edittextfilterjavamaxlength

This is my xml

<EditText
android:id="@+id/et_comment"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:inputType="textNoSuggestions|textVisiblePassword"
android:hint="Provide comments here..."
android:gravity="top"
android:maxLength="5"
android:textSize="12sp"
android:visibility="visible"
/>

Neither is it working using this code

TextView editEntryView = new TextView(...);
InputFilter[] filterArray = new InputFilter[1];
filterArray[0] = new InputFilter.LengthFilter(5);
editEntryView.setFilters(filterArray);

maxLenth is not working, I dont know why, but it isnt.
I have checked other answers on the stack but they are also not working.
Please check if any of EditText attributes are conflicting or what is the problem?

EDIT: Same problem is being faced by other developers
See comments here same problem is being faced by Mansi and aat
And here in comments same problem is being faced by Vincy and Riser

EDIT: Problem solved
I was using input filter which overrides the max length in xml making it not able to work.
The reason input filter didn't worked for me was that I was using another input filter which overwrites the previous maxLength input filter.
Making it into a single input filter fixed that issue for me.

Best Solution

Try this, it will work for both maxlenght and input filter

month.setFilters(new InputFilter[]{new InputFilterMinMax("0", "12"), new InputFilter.LengthFilter(2)});
