Amazing Matei ! Very straight and simple yet extremely helpful tutorial. Thanks a ton!

Thank you. I appreciate your feedback, it made my day!

thank you for this amazing tutorial.
what if i want to make the user ability to change agrams from 7 to 10 for the long coffe as instance how can i implement this

@mateisuica Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

You would need to add this configuration to the CoffeeLoggerWidgetConfigureActivity:

  • add a field like “long coffee amoung (g)”
  • save this value in CoffeeLoggerPersistance (or directly in the SharedPreferences)
  • use the saved value when adding a long Coffee in the MainActivity (or Service)

It’s just like we’ve done with the coffee limit in the tutorial but with a new user preference. Don’t forget to use the default value if the user doesn’t enter a preference

This tutorial is more than six months old so questions are no longer supported at the moment for it. Thank you!
