Hi there,

Your activity names are incorrect inside the Intent constructor. The first argument wants to be the Activity you are currently in. The second argument is the Activity you are switching to. The current activity uses the .this keyword, as you have done, and use .class for the second activity.

That should work for you.

Steve.

I'm not sure why Steve Hunter's answer was downvoted because he's right. You need to look at the last line of your code here (before the closing brackets), especially this:

(MyActivity.this, MyOtherActivity.class)

You need to replace MyActivity with the name of the activity you're launching your intent from, so LaunchActivity here, keeping the .this at the end. Then replace MyOtherActivity with the name of the activity your intent will be launching (you're not mentioning the name here), keeping .class at the end. Hope that helps.

You're welcome Steve :)
