Android Android Lists and Adapters (2015) Using Parcelable Data Reading Parcelable Data

android lists and adapters

iam stuck,,need help

public class VideoGame implements Parcelable {

    public String mTitle = "";
    public int mYear = 0;

    public VideoGame() {
        // intentionally blank

    // getters and setters omitted for brevity!

    public int describeContents() {
        return 0;

    public void writeToParcel(Parcel dest, int flags) {

    public VideoGame(Parcel in) {
        // Task 1 code here!
       mTitle = in.readString();
     mYear = in.readInt();


    public static final Creator<VideoGame> CREATOR = new Creator<VideoGame>() {
        public VideoGame createFromParcel(Parcel source) {
            // Task 2 code here!
            return new VideoGame(source);

        public VideoGame[] newArray(1500) {
            // Task 3 code here!
            return new VideoGame[Size];

Finally, we need to update the length of the array returned in the Creator's 'newArray()' method. Use the size parameter passed in.

You're pretty much there.

Don't change the parameters that the method takes; that's required for the method implementation. Also, in doing that, you've deleted the exact bit you need, and have used correctly, in the following method.

        public VideoGame[] newArray(int size) {  // <-- put the size back in there
            // Task 3 code here!
            return new VideoGame[size];  // <-- and use it here. Change your code to lower case 's'

I hope that helps.
