Create first android app using Android studio

In this post, we are going to create first android app which will show result of multiplication of two user input numbers. We have already created Android hello world example before but it was too basic.
We are going to design our screen as below:

Android First App

We are not going to put much validations here. We will just create above screen which will show multiplication of two numbers in Result textview.

Steps for creating first android app using Android studio:

Step 1:

Create a new android project named “MultiplicationApp”. Provide Activity name as “MultiplicationActivity” instead of “HelloWorldActivity”.

Step 2:

Go to res -> layout -> activity_multiplication.xml. Paste following code in xml file to create multiplication screen.

Step 3:

Go to app -> java -> package -> MultiplicationActivity.java.
Change MultiplicationActivity.java as below:

To get any widget reference in activity class, you can use id which you have defined in layout xml file. So to get reference for editText corresponds to “Number 1” in the screen, we have used below code:

You can get text entered by user in that edit text by using below code:

We have also put click listener on button named “Multiply”.

Step 4 :

Run the app. When you run above app on emulator, you will get below screen:

Android first app preparation

Provide user input numbers and click on multiply, you will get the result.

Android first app development

We are done with first  android app using android studio.
Happy Android Learning!!

  • In this post, we will see how to generate random number between 1 to 10 in javascript. How to generate random number between 1 and 10 in javascript We can simply Math.random() method to generate random number between 1 and 10 in javascript. `Math.random()` returns a random number between 0(inclusive), and 1(exclusive). That means `Math.random()` returns always number lower than 1. We can use `Math.random()` with `Math.floor()` to generate random integer. Here is generic formula to generate random number in the range. Math.floor(Math.random() * (maximum - minimum + 1)) + minimum In our case, minimum = 1 maximum = 10 so it will be Math.floor(Math.random() * (10 - 1 + 1)) + 1 Math.floor(Math.random() * 10) + 1 So here is the program to generate random number between 1 and 10 in javascript. var randNum = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10) + 1; console.log(randNum) When you run above program, you will get below output: 3 You can obviously get differnt outout as we are generating random number here. Generate 10 random integers in range of 1 to 10 console.log("Generating 10 random integers in range of 1 to 10") for (let i = 0; i < 10; i++) { var randNum = Math.floor(Math.random() * 10) + 1; console.log(randNum) } Generate 10 random integers in range of 1 to 10 7 5 1 10 5 9 7 7 6 2 Generate random number in a range in javascript Here is generic formula to generate random number in a range. function generateRandomInteger(min, max) { return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1)) + min; } // Generate random number between 1 to 10 console.log(generateRandomInteger(1,10)) // Generate random number between 11 to 20 console.log(generateRandomInteger(11,20)) // Generate random number between 21 to 30 console.log(generateRandomInteger(21,30)) 4 17 28 In case, if you don't want to include maximum while generating random numbers, you can use below function. function generateRandomInteger(min, max) { return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min)) + min; } That's all about how to generate random number between 1 and 10 in javascript
