I'm making a Sudoku app and I'm having trouble with it. When I try to pull the value held in the EditTexts (which represent the squares), I can't seem to get the correct value. I've had this problem before and managed to work around it, but now I just want to deal with problem straight up. Can anyone shed some light on this problem? And on a totally unrelated note, is there a better way to assign the EditText ids? The way I did it seems...inelegant :P
