We are not going to put much validations here. We will just create above screen which will show multiplication of two numbers in Result textview.

Steps for creating first android app using Android studio:

Step 1:

Step 2:

Go to res -> layout -> activity_multiplication.xml. Paste following code in xml file to create multiplication screen.

Step 3:

Go to app -> java -> package -> MultiplicationActivity.java.
Change MultiplicationActivity.java as below:

To get any widget reference in activity class, you can use id which you have defined in layout xml file. So to get reference for editText corresponds to “Number 1” in the screen, we have used below code:

You can get text entered by user in that edit text by using below code:

We have also put click listener on button named “Multiply”.

Step 4 :

Run the app. When you run above app on emulator, you will get below screen:
