editText look and feel

Hi All,

I just started my first android program, and I have one issue with EditText. I have created a new EditText component and I am trying to run it in the virtual android device. What I see is this:
Label: _________________

But what I want to see is a closed text box. Something like this:
Label: |_________|

I am not able to figure out where exactly I can make this change. I am trying to do this in a ScrollView. I am very new to android development. Please help me.

What I want is just a closed text box, instead of a single line. This should be something really basic. But I am not able to find which particular settings I need to change to see this in the virtual android device.

I have attached 2 screen shots here:
present_text_box.JPG - the text field as it looks now
desired_closed_text_box.JPG - the text field I want to see it as

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
