Intent is basically a message that is passed between components (such as Activities, Services, Broadcast Receivers, and Content Providers).

It’s also use for create target of another Activity. In Intent we can send data via bundle.


Example à



btnSubmit.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {



                  public void onClick(View v) {

                        // TODO Auto-generated method stub


                        // TODO Auto-generated method stub

                        // Intent objIntent=new Intent(CurrentClass.this,

                        // TargretClass.class)

                        // startActivity(intent);

                        Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, Second.class);






// It will open Second Activity.
