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

intents and multiples

we previously added a FUEL_LEVEL to our spacecraft. Now in FlightActivity, we want to get the value that we put in the intent.Start by declaring an intent variable and getting th intent used to start this Activity.

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

   public void onClick(View v) {
        // Add your code in here!
        Intent intent = new Intent(this, FlightActivity.class);

Hi MUZ140961,

You want to call the getIntent method on the Activity class that FlightActivity inherits from. To do this, call it on super like you have done with onCreate. It won't take any arguments.

Intent intent = super.getIntent();
