Imagine that we have two different screen design that we want to connect them so that the user able to click to see the details of the information that our product has provided. We have to use an Intent to make that happens.

So, here is The proper way to use an Intent in Android Studio.

First, you have to create 2 different activity in the Android Studio, you can start with the empty activity to make it easier. Do not forget to make the text in each activity has a different string. So, you will see the different content of each activity.

After that, you can provide a button to make an event for the user, this event that we used is OnClickListener. You can see the source code below.

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    public static final String EXTRA_MESSAGE = "com.example.myfirstapp.MESSAGE";
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    /** Called when the user taps the Send button */
    public void sendMessage(View view) {
        Intent intent = new Intent(this, DisplayMessageActivity.class);
        EditText editText = (EditText) findViewById(;
        String message = editText.getText().toString();
        intent.putExtra(EXTRA_MESSAGE, message);

So, you create a new function that we called sendMessage, after that you are passing that function name in the XML of a button. It is pretty easy.

Oh, wait, I still do not understand.
