Get integer value out of an intent

Hi All

I am trying to fetch integer value out of an intent doing the next : int g = getIntent(). getIntExtra(FUEL_LEVEL); where FUEL_LEVEL is my key...

What is the correct syntax.


import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // Add your code below!

Hey Oak,

this forum post might be helpful, the first answer shows how to get an integer out of an intent :-)

Hi Oak - First use the getIntent() method to get the intent that started FlightActivity. Assign the return value of getIntent() to a variable, say called intent, of type Intent. Then call the getIntExtra() method on the variable intent. You need to pass the key, "FUEL_LEVEL", as the first parameter and -1 as the second parameter. Finally, assign the return value of getIntExtra to mFuelLevel. Let me know if you have more questions on this.
