    You are looking for TextWatcher:

        youredittext.addTextChangedListener(new TextWatcher()
            public void afterTextChanged(Editable mEdit) 
                text = mEdit.toString();
            public void beforeTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int count, int after){}
            public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count){}
