Advice: menu, dialog or new page

Postby iaindownie » Mon Dec 14, 2009 3:35 pm

Hi - novice question here:

I've built a really simple, one page App. I'd like a page of instructions to be available to anyone who can't work it out. Question:

1. In peoples opinion, is it good practice to develop a menu, instructions menu item (done, easy) and then go to a new page? Or is it better to have a dedicated icon (for example) and open a new page from that?

2. Any one point me at a good tutorial for opening a new page from a link?

Thanks in advance
Iain

2.
If u want to move on to the next page, u can try calling that intent.

Intent i = new Intent(.......
startActivity(i);

There are many tutorials on this.
If what u want is openning a web page on the click, then what you can do is to start looking around webview tutorials which can be easily found in Anddev.org
