Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) Finishing the User Interface Ending the Story

first page in interactive story is showing play again button

I not sure why this is doing that and really not sure what code to show. It was all looking to work right like the video, the app would crash when I got to the end page. I added in the isFinal code and now my start page shows the play again button. Here is the code for the isFinal.

 if(mCurrentPage.isFinal()){
            mChoice1.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);
            mChoice2.setText("PLAY AGAIN");
            mChoice2.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                @Override
                public void onClick(View v) {
                    finish();
                }
            });
        }
        else {
            mChoice1.setText(mCurrentPage.getChoice1().getText());
            mChoice2.setText(mCurrentPage.getChoice2().getText());

            mChoice1.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                @Override
                public void onClick(View v) {
                    int nextPage = mCurrentPage.getChoice1().getNextPage();
                    loadPage(nextPage);
                }
            });

            mChoice2.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                @Override
                public void onClick(View v) {
                    int nextPage = mCurrentPage.getChoice2().getNextPage();
                    loadPage(nextPage);
                }
            });
        }

any ideas would be great, I'm taking a small break, maybe coffee will help :)

Thanks Stephen

Figured it out, I have two Page constructors and I was setting mIsFinal to true in the first once but it should of been in the second one (DOH!).... so if anybody had the same problem I had I'll post the two constructors here, maybe it will help somebody someday...

 public Page(int ImageId, String text, Choice choice1,Choice choice2) {
        mImageId = ImageId;
        mText = text;
        mChoice1 = choice1;
        mChoice2 = choice2;
    }

    public Page (int imageId,String text) {
        mImageId = imageId;
        mText = text;
        mChoice1 = null;
        mChoice2 = null;
        mIsFinal = true;
    }

The above code is how it should look ;)

Cheers! Stephen

Can you show code of your .isFinal() method?

 private boolean mIsFinal = false;

    public boolean isFinal() {
        return mIsFinal;
    }

I did notice that in the code below there is a black line through the getDrawable();

Drawable drawable = getResources().getDrawable(mCurrentPage.getImageId());

not sure if that would be the problem or not, I think that is just letting me know that the code isn't for older version like API 14 I thbink

Is there a method which changed value of mIsFinal?

 private boolean mIsFinal = false;

    public boolean isFinal() {
        return mIsFinal;
    }

    public void setFinal(boolean isFinal) {
        mIsFinal = isFinal;
    }
