I am using edit box as an input window. When user click enter button callback of the edit box runs and takes the input. And in order to change the text of edit box I need to select the editbox again. Is there code that I can add and of callback, it selects edit box instead of me.

You don't need to "select" it. You just use the set() function to send a string to it.
set(handles.edit1, 'String', yourString);

What do you mean by "select"? Do you mean to highlight the text that is in there so that if the user types a character the whole contents are replaced by what he typed? Or do you mean that it just has focus? If it's the former you'll have to look to some java code. Try - that will show you how to do it.
