Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Basic Android Programming Introduction to Methods and Classes

Did Ben forget to add "return Pizza(toppings);" in orderPizza method in Example.java?

I just want to be sure if I am missing something, or if Ben forgot to return the Pizza object with input parameter(s) in the orderPizza method in Example.java?

public Pizza orderPizza(String toppings) {
// code to make the Pizza goes here
}

I mean, when one declares the return type with input parameter(s) in a method, should one not return it in the end of the method? Is there something wrong with my understanding, or should Ben write the following instead?

public Pizza orderPizza(String toppings) {
// code to make the Pizza goes here

return Pizza(toppings);
}

You are correct. I think he wanted to keep it simple rather than explain that part. Ben would have had to explain why he needed to return the topping, which would probably have added an unneeded minute or two to the video.

OK. I just got confused that he did not include that piece of (important) information :-)
