Build an Interactive Story app. Intent help!!

I have not used int while using Intent

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // Add your code below!
    Intent intent = getIntent();
    int getIntExtra (String "FUEL_LEVEL", int -1);

Awesome! Thank you so much.

The example you provided really helped me to see what I was doing wrong.

You need to specify where you want to get the IntExtra from :) Do you know what I mean?

For example:

String coolText = mEditText.getText().toString();

I GET my text from my EditText and store it in a String variable.

It's pretty much the same with your problem. Try to store the intExtra that you GET from your intent in an appropriate variable.
