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


Am I using the correct method to set mFuelLevel?

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

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

The keyword int is only used when a variable is first declared. mFuelLevel is already declared as a member variable, so you don't start the line with int. You also don't use it when stating a literal number. It's only used for variables.

Ah Master Seth, you're a star. May the code be with you.
