2. Now goto java>yourpackagename.com.applicationname in my case java>com.techsupportnep.multiuser>MainActivity.java

 

a. Inside the class declare the following variable as:

EditText _txtUser, _txtPass;
Button _btnLogin;
Spinner _spinner;

 

b. Before writing below code you have to add two activity in your application. So for thsi:

Inside the onCreate method initialize each control as:


_txtPass=(EditText)findViewById(R.id.txtPass);
_txtUser=(EditText)findViewById(R.id.txtUser);
_btnLogin=(Button)findViewById(R.id.btnLogin);
_spinner=(Spinner)findViewById(R.id.spinner);
ArrayAdapter <CharSequence> adapter = ArrayAdapter.createFromResource(this, R.array.usertype, R.layout.support_simple_spinner_dropdown_item);
_spinner.setAdapter(adapter);
_btnLogin.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
String item = _spinner.getSelectedItem().toString();
if(_txtUser.getText().toString().equals("admin")&& _txtPass.getText().toString().equals("admin")&& item.equals("admin")){
Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, admin.class);
startActivity(intent);

}else if(_txtUser.getText().toString().equals("admin")&& _txtPass.getText().toString().equals("admin")&& item.equals("user")){
Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, user.class);
startActivity(intent);
}else {
Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Error", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}

}
});

Press shift+f10 or simply click in the play button below the menu of the android studio and then select your AVD either builtin AVD , or third party AVD or your phone device and then click proceed.
