You can send complex information in an intent with the data property (a URI) or with intent extras. Each extra is a key-value pair, and you can pass as many extra values as you need. Learn how to send complex data from one activity to another using both data and extra values.
- [Instructor] When you start a new activity with an Intent,…you can pass an action as I showed previously,…but you can also pass much more detailed data.…There are a couple of ways of doing this…using either the data object of the Intent…or you can pass data extras.…The URI is a single property and it's a strongly typed…uniform resource identifier object.…Here's how you create it.…I'll place this code before I call startActivity…in the MainActivity class.…
And I'll create a new object that I'll call uri.…And I'll use the Java URI class from Android.net.…From there, I'll call the parse function…and I'll pass in the string.…Typically, this is a string that looks like a URL,…so you start with http://…and then add your base package.…And for me, that's com.example.myfirstapp.…Next, you can add one or more virtual directory names…and these will constitute the action that you want to pass.…
I'll use view.…And then you can add a query string.…I'll put in a question mark and say, id=…and then I'll pass in the monsterId variable.…
