trying to disable focusable, not working, android

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I am connecting to a terminal emulator using a library in android, this connects to a serial device (a switch) and shows me sent/received data. I send data over serial using another library. I send data over the connection via a text box below the terminal or by typing in the terminal itself and hitting enter on the keyboard in both cases. However I want to disable input into the terminal, so I tried to set focusable to false. I can still type in it though, Any other way to disable typing into the view? <jackpal.androidterm.emulatorview.EmulatorView android:id="@+id/emulatorView" (HowTos)
