How to Go to New Screen/Page in Android Studio?

Posted 24 April 2016 - 07:31 PM

Hello < Dream.in.code >.. I have a quick question regarding android studio.

So First Of all I am COMPLETELY new to this thing so don't get me wrong if i make a mistake.

So what I am doing is that I have created a title screen for my app called "Canada Quiz". And below the title I have a "Start" Button. And what I done so far is I have attached a code that would do something like this: So once a Start Button is clicked it would hide it. Now my Question.

How would I make it so That once Clicked it should hide the Start Button and show the Question and a TRUE and FALSE button. All I have is this. I just want the Questions the appear as soon as the person taps the Start Button. And in My Content_Main.xml i have a phone as a model witch displays the start button and the canada quiz. So Please Healpp Me Out as soon as POSSIBLE>>>


package com.example.nilesh.myapplication;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v4.view.ViewPager;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.widget.Button;

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    private Button startButton;
    private Button trueButton;
    private Button falseButton;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


        startButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.startButton);

        ArrayList <String> questions = new ArrayList<String>();

        String firstQue = " Is Canada Located in North America? ";
        String secondQue = " Is Ontario the Largest provice in Canada? ";
        String thridQue = " Is Toronto the Largest City in Canada? ";
        String fourQue = " Canada has 3 professional Basketball Teams. ";
        String fiveQue = " Canada has 11 Provinces and 3 Territories. ";
        String sixQue = " Justin Trudeau is not Canada's Prime Minister. ";

        final String [] allQuestions = {firstQue,secondQue,thridQue,fourQue,fiveQue,sixQue};

        startButton.setonclickListener(new View.onclickListener() {
            public void onclick (View v) {

    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu_main, menu);
        return true;

    public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
        // Handle action bar item clicks here. The action bar will
        // automatically handle clicks on the Home/Up button, so long
        // as you specify a parent activity in AndroidManifest.xml.
        int id = item.getItemId();

        //noinspection SimplifiableIfStatement
        if (id == R.id.action_settings) {
            return true;

        return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);

    public Button getTrueButton() {
        return trueButton;

    public void setTrueButton(Button trueButton) {
        this.trueButton = trueButton;

    public Button getFalseButton() {
        return falseButton;

    public void setFalseButton(Button falseButton) {
        this.falseButton = falseButton;

**Note** I cannot see the TRUE BUTTON and FALSE BUTTON the content_main.xml file....

"I cannot see the TRUE BUTTON and FALSE BUTTON the content_main.xml file.... "

Why ?

Basically you have to play with the visibility of you View .For example you can set the attribute of a View in your xml file as android:visibility="gone" to be hidden .

then when the button is clicked you can call method setVisibility(View.VISIBLE) to be visible.

Button exampleButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.exampleButton);

  exampleButton.setonclickListener(new View.onclickListener() {
             public void onclick(View v) {

Another way would be to use Fragments, when the button is clicked you would add your fragment in your main activity.

You can use "Intents" to go to different screens(fragments or activities), you can create the questions on a different screen(eg. fragment or activity) then add an intent to call the new screen from the start button on your first screen. Please take a look at these android documentation on intents.
