In the Android UI designer, if you use the Property Window to set NextFocusDown, the designer uses the wrong control ID name.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new Android Application.
2. Open Main.axml, add two EditText views.
3. Set the 'id' of both EditText views.
4. With the first EditText view selected, open the Property Window, click 'Behavior', Expand 'Focus'
5. For NextFocusDown, click the dropdown arrow and choose the 'id' for the second EditText view.

Simply adding the '+' makes the build error go away.
The designer should insert the correct 'id' for the property.
