Creating and Editing Tasks with SQLite
After you have a
ContentProvider, you can create a task for it: Insert a record, and then list all tasks on the
ReminderListFragment. The user can then tap a task to edit it, or long-press the task to delete it. These user interactions cover the create, read, update, and delete(CRUD) operations needed to make the Task Reminder application work.
Inserting a task entry
Inserting tasks is simple, after you get the hang of it. To insert your first task into the SQLite database, build the Save button click listener to:
1. Retrieve values from
2. Store the values to the
ReminderProvider database using a
3. Update the user interface by displaying a toast and closing the edit activity.
After inserting your first task, you should have enough of a grasp on the
ReminderProvider class interaction to perform more tasks. The next sections introduce you to the entire implementation of
ReminderProvider, which outlines the CRUD operations.
Saving values from the screen to the database
When the user creates a task, it takes place in the
OnClickListener of the
ReminderEditFragment. There, the app responds to the user’s Save button click. If the
mRowId for the fragment is
