Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for the solution. Just out of curiosity, can you please tell me the way (maybe the process) you find these solutions? I mean, do you just type the correct questions on web and get the desired answers or finding it on your own by hit and trial method in Android Studio?

Regards, Paritosh.
