Android Build an Interactive Story App Intents and Multiple Activities Getting Data from an Intent

I am really stuck with this challenge. Can't figure out what is causing my error.

Kindly assist.

FlightActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;
//import android.content.Intent;

public class FlightActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public int fuelLevel = 0;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_flight);

        // Add your code below!
            Intent intent = getIntent();
        fuelLevel = intent.getStringExtra("FUEL_LEVEL");
    }
}

Hi William

You were so close, you just needed to use the Int instead of String.

Also, remember that getIntExtra takes 2 parameters.

See the documentation for further reading

import android.os.Bundle;
//import android.content.Intent;

public class FlightActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public int fuelLevel = 0;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_flight);

        // Add your code below!
        Intent intent = getIntent();
        fuelLevel = intent.getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", -1);
    }
}

Good Luck
