Display Integer variables in TextView?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I'm completely new to Android programming, but I do have experience with Java programming. I'm trying to learn some of the basics by writing a very basic calorie counter. Here's the code I'm working with:


public class CalorieCounterActivity extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */

private Integer totalCal = 2000;
private Integer remainingCal = 2000;

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

	TextView totalCal = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.totalCal);
	totalCal.setText("\n\n\nCalories Allowed\n" + totalCal);

	TextView remainingCal = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.calRemain);
	remainingCal.setText("\n\n\nCalories Remaining\n" + remainingCal);


The problem is that when I run the app, the text in the textviews show up correctly, but the variables do not. I get the text: android.widget.TextView@whatAppearsToBeAMemoryAddressHere.


What am I doing incorrectly, and how do I fix it.
