Notepad Tutorial - Delete Blank Notes

Postby runnerpaul » Thu Mar 03, 2011 8:55 pm


Im a relatively inexperienced programmer but am trying to get to grips with Android development. I just completed the notepad tutorial at

I have noticed that its possible to create a blank note but that it then cant be deleted. I thought a good way to learn more would be to attempt the following:

1. Throw an error if the user attempts to commit adding a blank note.
2. Add a feature where its possible to delete blank notes.

If anybody has any ideas where to begin with this or if you know of relevant sites to look at I would be greatful.

I guess you're using Notepadv3solution:

1. add "if (body.trim().equals("")) { ERROR }" to the saveState method.
2. if you have the id of the blank note there is a pre exsiting method to delete it in It can be called via mDbHelper.delete(id).
