I am trying to start a new Activity from my Activity. For this am
creating an intent as

Intent sendIntent = new Intent(this,Newactivity.class);

With the above i am able to launch my new Intent.
If I want to send some data from Current Activity to the Newactivity
(Where my Newactivity have a text box). The data i send from
CurrentActivity to Newactivity should be displayed in this text box.

Can anyone help me out how to do this ?

You'll want to use the "extras" in Intents. Look at putExtra() and the
corresponding getXXXExtra() (where XXX is some data type).

1. Android Programming Class

Hello everyone:

I teach an 8th grade programming class in San Antonio Texas. We're
learning Android and I convinced the school to buy us 3 dev phones for
the kids.

Here's an article about what we're doing:

I'd like to purchase a netbook to supplement the phones so that when
the students check them out, they have an out-of-the-box programming
environment within which the phones work.

I've put together a donation page. My goal is to raise $350 dollars
for a netbook to go along with these devices. If you can donate $1,
$5, or $10 to help my class out, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for considering it!

2. Throwing an event in an Application, handling it in an Activity

Sure. All of your activities have access to the one application
(getApplication()), so they can register and unregister themselves with it
in onCreate and onDestroy.)
