-------------Problems Reply------------

Remove setContentView from showPopup. This is resetting your layout and text view to the original text.

You don't need to set the view twice. Use the following code.

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

TextView hello;
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
hello = (TextView)findViewById(;

public void showPopup(View view){
String how = "How are you";
