        </activity>
        </application>
</manifest>
    

Step 5.

Import Package and write following coding in MainActivity.java class file.

	
    import android.view.View;
    import android.widget.Button;
    import android.widget.EditText;

   public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {
   Button btn1;
    EditText txt1;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        btn1=(Button)findViewById(R.id.btnPassData);
        txt1=(EditText)findViewById(R.id.editText);
        btn1.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
            // 1. create an intent pass class name or intent action name
            Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, AnotherActivity.class);
            // 2. put key/value data
            //intent.putExtra("message", "Hello From MainActivity");

            // 3. or you can add data to a bundle
            Bundle extras = new Bundle();
            extras.putString("a", txt1.getText().toString());
            extras.putString("b","hello");

            // 4. add bundle to intent
            intent.putExtras(extras);

            // 5. start the activity
            startActivity(intent);
            }
        });
    }
    
    

Step 6.

Import Package and write following coding in AnotherActivity.java class file.

    import android.app.Activity;
    import android.content.Intent;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import android.widget.Toast;
    import android.widget.TextView;

   /**

   */
  public class AnotherActivity extends Activity{
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_another);
        {
            Intent intent = getIntent();
            // 2. get message value from intent
            String message = intent.getStringExtra("a");
            // 3. show message on textView
            ((TextView)findViewById(R.id.tvMessage)).setText(message);
        }
     }
  }
    

Step 7.

Go to activity_another.xml page and write following code.
Go to app → manifest → activity_another.xml file.

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent">
