New update about this android challenge
I have received lots of feedback from participants and many people. The general consensus was that the initial challenges are very simple and easy. Beside, participants want something more challenging which will also look like a project.
So I will give it a try from this challenge. If you feel that any of the challenges is too hard for a beginner, kindly contact me or leave a message in the comment section.
So lets proceed with today’s challenge.
Aim of this Challenge
To learn how to implement Login and Logout in android using Shared Preferences.
Task Requirements for this Challenge
1. Create a launch or intro Activity A
2. Add two EditText (Username and Password) and a Button widgets in Activity A layout file.
3. When the Button View on Activity A is clicked,
I. Check that the username and password fields are not empty
ii If the are empty instruct the user to fill in these fields
iii, If the fields are already filled validate the username and password with the username and password you stored in a Shared Preference.
4. If the username and password match then send the user to a new Activity B
5. If there is no match, stay in Activity A and notify the user of incorrect login details
6. If a user is login, display the username with welcome in Activity B and a Logout Button
7. If a user click on the Logout Button it will redirect the User to Activity A with all the EditText empty.
You must store a hand coded username and password when the app initially loads.
