Before we start developing, we have to think about what we desire the activity to do. You should ask yourself two central questions.

  1. Input: What kind of data is at my disposal?
  2. Output: What kind of data should the activity return

Awesome Calculator - Example

For this tutorial we will develop the following activities:

The first activity takes a string as input, with a simple arithmetic formula of numbers and the four basic operations (plus, minus, multiply and divided) and will perform a calculation on it.

  • Name: CalculateFromStringActivity
  • Input: Calculation as String, e. g. 1 + 3
  • Output: The result is an integer

The second activity is also intended to perform a calculation, but this time the values are passed directly as input.

  • Name: CalculateSimpleActivity
  • Input: Number 1 as int, number 2 as int and the calculation type should be selectable via a drop-down list
  • Output: The result as int
