getActivity() to get a reference to
MainActivity in order to return the new note to be added to
ArrayList of notes. Here is the code as a reminder:
// Get a reference to MainActivity MainActivity callingActivity = (MainActivity) getActivity(); // Pass newNote back to MainActivity callingActivity.createNewNote(newNote); ...
