activity starter

App Inventor has a nifty component called an activity starter. We are going to look into it.

Google describes the component as:

A component that can launch another activity from your application.

You communicate with the activity starter by setting properties of the component to pass information related to the activity, including the action and activity class. See Using the Activity Starter Component for details and examples.



and what we have done:

  • simple - Activity Starter to App Inventor with ListPicker and back
  • sdk2ai - simple using an activity written with the SDK
    • date picker - sdk2ai using date picker widget
    • multi picker - picks and then picks based on the first pick
  • ffxiii - use an activity like a database - currently the activity is an App Inventor app
  • sdk - SDK activity that returns info in various languages 
  • notes - notes...
