The Problem1:12 with Ben Deitch
Use a Button and a TextView to create an app that counts up from zero!
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hey there, I'm Ben and I'm here to give you a little more practice with Android. 0:04 After all, practicing what you've learned is one of the best ways to make it stick. 0:09 In this practice session, we're going to practice creating a new project and 0:14 making a button respond to clicks. 0:17 If you're trying to implement something and it's just not working, a good way to 0:19 figure out what's wrong is to try and implement it in an empty project. 0:23 So what we are going to do for 0:27 this session is create an empty project and then build accounting app. 0:28 Here is what you need to do. 0:32 First, create a new project, naming it whatever you'd like, I've picked Counter. 0:34 Then, add a button and text view to the middle of the layout and 0:39 make the text view start with 0 as well as give the button a label of +1. 0:44 Also, set the size of the text in the text view to 24 sp. 0:49 Finally, once you've got your button in your text view, hook them up so 0:54 that when we tap on the button the text view increments by one, just like this. 0:58 All right now it's your turn, also if you get stuck or have any issues 1:04 there's some links to related videos in the teacher's notes below. 1:08 Good luck. 1:11
