Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the ColorSpotR user interface, part of Learning Simple Android Development Tools.
…It's time to build a real app inside Basic4android.…If you watched the MIT App Inventor…chapter, then you understand about the ColorSpotR.…If you haven't, it's a take on the old back seat game where people get to look…for barn, horse, tractor, airplane and pass the time on a road trip.…ColorSpotR is something similar, which just allows you to look out…the window and spot cars with different color paint jobs on them.…And once you've found all six colors, then you're a winner.…
So let's go ahead and fire up Basic4android.…We end up one more time with the empty module here.…Let's first of all go ahead and get rid of the message box.…Tell the activity to load, layout, layout one.…And then let's do a save, and we'll come back up to the documents menu.…We'll create a new folder and we'll call it ColorSpotR1.…Went to that folder and we'll call the file name ColorSpotR.…And click Save.…Now, if you remember the previous ColorSpotR, we need to create six buttons…that represent the different colors of car paint that we want to look for.…
