Location of the facts array and follow-up


Out of curiosity, would it not be better to create the facts array out of the OnClickListener? Maybe even in another file?

Also, let’s say I want to reference strings that are in a separate file (for ease of edition), with the facts array getting the facts in that file, would that be possible?

Hey Rafael! You could create the facts array outside the OnClickListener or in another file, but ultimately as long as it makes sense to you, it doesn't matter too much where you put it. Also, you can use static variables to make something accessible outside of the file it's in. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the answer! In fact part of my question was answered in the following video, I jumped the gun on that topic :D
