Android apps need to be interactive and that means programming in Java. During this course, you will discover how to create an app, from layout to Java code. Begin by exploring how to integrate interactivity and gestures into your apps, and make your interface fit properly on the screen. Next you will learn how to set up buttons on your interface, and initialize variables in the system, along with the conditional logic of IF and ELSE statements. As you progress, you will learn how to program a Decimal Event, and deal with special input characters, such as math operators in a calculator application. Conclude by working with programmatic designs to save time and automate solutions.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • describe the role played by interactivity and gestures in Android development
    describe how to use aligning to the parent to fix layout fitting issues in Android development
    specify how to programmatically use buttons in your Android apps
    specify how to create initial variables for an Android app
    demonstrate how to process user input and convert it into strings in Android development
    identify the purpose of IF…ELSE statements and demonstrate how they're used in Android development
    discuss the purpose of switch statements and demonstrate how they're used in Android development
  • demonstrate how to create code in a calculator app that processes when a decimal point button was pressed
    specify how special input characters like math operators in a calculator application can be handled in Java switch statements
    demonstrate how to modify layout element attributes using Java in Android development
    demonstrate how to create code in a calculator app that processes when a Cancel button was pressed
    describe how to process user input stored in a string in a calculator application
    create interactive components in an Android app and program them to accept input
