Android Build a Weather App (2015) Hooking Up the Model to the View Setting Views with Data

Hi. Am trying to get text data from Movie, I think.

The given example wasn't so clear. Can you help me get movie data? Steve Hunter

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;

public class MovieActivity extends Activity {

    @BindView(R.id.movieTitle) TextView mTitleLabel;
    @BindView(R.id.movieImage) ImageView mMovieImage;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // The rest of the code is omitted for brevity :)

    public void updateDisplay(Movie movie) {

1 Answer

Hi Mal,

You've done the hard bit here; but got the instance of Movie incorrect. The Movie instance you want to use is the one passed into the updateDisplay() method. It is called movie, not movieTitle. You've correctly used that as a parameter for the setText method of the mTitleLabel.

So amend your code to use that instead; you'll end up with something like:

    public void updateDisplay(Movie movie) {    // <- use this movie
        // Add your code here!


Woo hoo! I should stop smiling coz people will start asking what am I watching on my laptop, lol. This android is a tricky one.

Many thanks for your help. I've got years before I become a coding jedi as yourself.
