get***Extra, sure it was not a String

Had a bummer, fuelLevel is an int, what the right method to have? intent.getStringExtra() was not working.

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public int fuelLevel = 0;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        Intent intent = getIntent();
        fuelLevel = intent.getIntegerExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", -1);

Hi there! You're doing great! The method you're looking for is getIntExtra, but you're using getIntegerExtra, which doesn't exist. You had the right idea, but just spelled out the entire word "Integer" :smiley:

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

The method name is simply getIntExtra (not getIntegerExtra)

like this:

  Intent i = getIntent();
  fuelLevel = i.getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", -1);
