Hi devs,

Introduction
Most of us developers may be hung up in a never ending loop causing StackOverflow Exception when changing the content of EditText inside its own textChangeListener.



How to change the text of an EditText inside the EditText addTextChangeListener in Android?

//First initialize the EditText and addTextChangedListener like shown below.
    editText1.addTextChangedListener(new TextWatcher() {@Override
            public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count) {}
            @Override
            public void beforeTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int count,
                    int after) {}
            @Override
            public void afterTextChanged(Editable s) {
            //Before changing the text inside the EditText you want to remove the text change listener.
                editText1.removeTextChangedListener(this);
            //Here you make the changes to EditText
                editText1.setText("hi");
            //After changing the content of the EditText you want to register the text change listener.
                editText1.addTextChangedListener(this);
            }
        });
