String value = textEntryView.getText();

See http://developer.android.com/reference/android/widget/TextView.html#getText()

The inflate method of the LayoutInflater class returns an object of type View. So, your textEntryView reference contains an View object. You cannot downcast it to EditText; you will get ClassCastException.

This is standard Java behavior and nothing specific to Android.

You will have to get a handle on the EditText widget by using findViewById(..) after you have inflated the view. And then do a getText on it.
