Android Build a Simple Android App with Java Basic Android Programming Making a Button Do Something

If I add another button on screen, why does it not listen to this if I click this button instead of the "showFactButton"

I was curious as to the how the listener knows which button is clicked. So i added a random button in the design, ran the project. Clicked on random button, but no new FACT shown. So question is around the listener, why does it not listen/react to if I click this random button instead of the "showFactButton"

Hi there,

It might be worth posting your code so we can correctly advise.

did you add an onclicklistener to the button? each one requires its own specific onclicklistener.
