Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) Intents and Multiple Activities Putting Data in an Intent

We've updated our LaunchActivity to include a fuel level (mFuelLevel) for the spacecraft. This value needs to be passed

I don't know what is wrong wth this:

import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

public class LaunchActivity extends Activity {

  public Button mLaunchButton;
  public int mFuelLevel;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // mFuelLevel is set elsewhere.
    // Code ommitted for brevity!

    mLaunchButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.launchButton);
    mLaunchButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
      public void onClick(View v) {
        // Add your code in here!
        Intent intent = new Intent(LaunchActivity.this, FlightActivity.class);
        Intent.putExtra("FUEL_LEVEL",mFuelLevel);  // use a lower case i at the beginning!

I had an issue on this very same task and realized after reading this how to solve it.

The prompt for this problem tells you to put your code in ABOVE the Intent... see above "//Add your code here!" Don't add it there or it won't work. you have to add it BELOW like this example has.

You need to use the variable called intent that you just created, not the class Intent that you are currently using. So change the capital I to a lower case one in your code; I've marked it with a comment.


thanks so much you a such a bright
