  Hi all,

Good to be here, so here is my story.

I had a fabulous idea for an app series that i want to develop but digging a bit deeper i could not find what i was looking as most online app sites use templates that are way too involved for the simple apps that i want to create, so decided to take matters into my own hand and start learning Java. I picked up Java for Dummies, 80 pages in and now my brain is hurting    so i am taking a break studying and writing this message to you the chosen ones.

I do hope that Java will give me the necessary tools i need to do what i am envisioning to design my own app series.

I have absolutely no programming skills whatsoever but i can layout an idea and know exactly how it has to function.

My questions to you expert Java developers are, say i am developing an app and i want to import a .png image and make that image function as a button, is that possible with coding?
I have 10 object and i want each one to dissapear on touch, coupled with a counter up to 10 but the images are not limited to a certain sequence, is that possible with coding?

If you have any advise my regarding study endeavor please feel feel to guide me into a direction i can follow.

Kind Regards

Brian Broodryk

Welcome to the Ranch

I suggest you learn basic programming first; then you will probably learn easy ways to do those things you mentioned.
Your post reads a bit as if you had strung a lot of words together really quickly without punctuation or dividing it into separate sentences and you cannot program a computer like that but have to be very precise with it otherwise it will believe everything you tell it even if it is different from what you wanted it to do and you will be surprised when it does something different and you can ask us and we shall tell you a computer does what you tell it to do not what you want it to do and shall most probably be able to sort out your problem quite quickly but we shall make you do the hard work.

Thanks Campbell, I will definitely put in the hard work.

Just wanted to know that it was possible so i do not waste time learning something that is gonna be useless upon completion.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, that is possible; anything that you can imagine on a computer or smartphone screen is possible with programming. That doesn't mean it's easy, however...
