I am trying to make a edittext box in a dialog box for entering a password. and when I am doing I am not able to do. I am a beginner in it. Please help me in this.

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

Button create, show, setting;
//String pass="admin";String password;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    create = (Button)findViewById(R.id.amcreate);
    setting = (Button)findViewById(R.id.amsetting);
    show = (Button)findViewById(R.id.amshow);
    //input = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.this);

    setting.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);

    create.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View view) {
            Intent myIntent1 = new Intent(view.getContext(), Create.class);
            startActivityForResult(myIntent1, 0);
        }

    });

    show.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        //@SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
        public void onClick(final View view) {

            // Creating alert Dialog with one Button
            AlertDialog.Builder alertDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);

            //AlertDialog alertDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this).create();

            // Setting Dialog Title
            alertDialog.setTitle("PASSWORD");

            // Setting Dialog Message
            alertDialog.setMessage("Enter Password");
            **final EditText input = new EditText(this);**
            //alertDialog.setView(input);

            // Setting Icon to Dialog
            alertDialog.setIcon(R.drawable.key);

            // Setting Positive "Yes" Button
            alertDialog.setPositiveButton("YES",
                    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog,int which) {
                            // Write your code here to execute after dialog
                            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),"Password Matched", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                            Intent myIntent1 = new Intent(view.getContext(), Show.class);
                            startActivityForResult(myIntent1, 0);
                        }
                    });
            // Setting Negative "NO" Button
            alertDialog.setNegativeButton("NO",
                    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                            // Write your code here to execute after dialog
                            dialog.cancel();
                        }
                    });

Use Activtiy Context

Replace this

  final EditText input = new EditText(this);

By

  final EditText input = new EditText(MainActivity.this);  
  LinearLayout.LayoutParams lp = new LinearLayout.LayoutParams(
                        LinearLayout.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT,
                        LinearLayout.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT);
  input.setLayoutParams(lp);
  alertDialog.setView(input); // uncomment this line

I know its too late to answer this question but for others who are searching for some thing similar to this here is a simple code of an alertbox with an edittext

AlertDialog.Builder alert = new AlertDialog.Builder(this); 

or

new AlertDialog.Builder(mContext, R.style.MyCustomDialogTheme);

if you want to change the theme of the dialog.

final EditText edittext = new EditText(ActivityContext);
alert.setMessage("Enter Your Message");
alert.setTitle("Enter Your Title");

alert.setView(edittext);

alert.setPositiveButton("Yes Option", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton) {
        //What ever you want to do with the value
        Editable YouEditTextValue = edittext.getText();
        //OR
        String YouEditTextValue = edittext.getText().toString();
    }
});

alert.setNegativeButton("No Option", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton) {
        // what ever you want to do with No option.
    }
});

alert.show();
