Unable to launch an activity from an AppWidget

 I have this code setup in my app widget and I have listed the activity
it should launch below. I can't for the life of me get the activity to
launch when the button is clicked. Nothing happens when I click on it.


public class MyAppWidget extends AppWidgetProvider
{
        public void onUpdate(Context context, AppWidgetManager
appWidgetManager, int[] appWidgetIds)
        {
        RemoteViews remoteViews = new
RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.main);


    Intent intent = new Intent(context, EditActivity.class);
                PendingIntent pendingIntent =
PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, intent,
Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
 
remoteViews.setOnClickPendingIntent(R.id.btnEditConfiguration,
pendingIntent);

                appWidgetManager.updateAppWidget(thisWidget,
remoteViews);
            }
}

 public class EditActivity extends Activity
    {
         public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
            {
                super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
 
setContentView(R.layout.configure);
            }
    }

Are you updating the right widget?
Is btnEditConfiguration visible/enabled?
Does the Activity work when started from launcher?
Any suspicious messages in logcat?

1. what exact error is this ???

2. ImageButton and focus state...

I want to change the android:background value when an image button is
selected (selected, not clicked).  What's the easiest way to do that?
I think I could create a derived class and override onDraw, but isn't
there something like onClickListener() where I can get notified when
the focus for that button changes?  onFocusListener?

tia.
