ActivityStarter

A component that can launch an activity using the StartActivity method.
Activities that can be launched include:
  • Starting another AppyBuilder app. To do so, first find out the class of the other application by downloading the source code and using a file explorer or unzip utility to find a file named "youngandroidproject/project.properties".
    The first line of the file will start with "main=" and be followed by the class name; for example, main=com.appybuilder.pmathijssen.MaterialDesignColorPalette.Screen1.
    To make your ActivityStarter launch this application, set the following properties:
    • ActivityPackage to the class name, dropping the last component (for example, com.gmail.Bitdiddle.Ben.HelloPurr)
    • ActivityClass to the entire class name (for example, com.gmail.Bitdiddle.Ben.HelloPurr.Screen1)
  • Starting the camera application by setting the following properties:
    • Action: android.intent.action.MAIN
    • ActivityPackage: com.android.camera
    • ActivityClass: com.android.camera.Camera
  • Performing web search. Assuming the term you want to search for is "vampire" (feel free to substitute your own choice), set the properties to:
    • Action: android.intent.action.WEB_SEARCH
    • ExtraKey: query
    • ExtraValue: vampire
    • ActivityPackage: com.google.android.providers.enhancedgooglesearch
    • ActivityClass: com.google.android.providers.enhancedgooglesearch.Launcher
  • Opening a browser to a specified web page. Assuming the page you want to go to is "www.facebook.com" (feel free to substitute your own choice), set the properties to:
    • Action: android.intent.action.VIEW
    • DataUri: http://www.facebook.com
