Hi Michael!

To change the image of an ImageView you can do the following:

ImageView imageView= (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.image_view);

Now, in order to change the image when you click a button, you can do:

Button button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.imageButton1);

button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
    public void onClick(View v) {

I hope this helps :)
