Hi guys,

So me and my friend are trying to build an application. He is building it for PC and I will be building it for android.
It is an application where a user can add clients to the app(name,number,email) etc.

the actual adding of the clients will happen on the desktop version of the app which my friend is going to set up.
he is going to create a database which stores the data the user creates in the app and let it sync to google cloud
in the android version which i am building, the user can only see the clients created on the desktop so the user can look at his/her schedule on the go.

So how can I enable google sign in on the android app so the user can retrieve the data created on the desktop version?

hopefully i am posting in the correct forum this time.

I made a small console app which stores fruit and outputs their values upon user request.


Main code:

How can I allow the user to add new fruits to the program and then let the user specify it's values like color,taste and cost?

I didn't know where to post it? How was i supposed to know its android, i assumed it can be done using java itself.

Or is this java forum for the normal java only, not android devolopment using java?

I am consfused.

Hi there fellow Ranchers,

Anyone have any idea how to slowly draw a border around a textview?

the border would start at the middel top of the text view and slowly draw around the textView till it is complete.
The border also needs to rapidly change color while drawing and then turn solid white when it is done.

The UI still needs some work but the app works.

Any suggestions or potential bugs that you think might occur?

Oh wow, that solved it.

Thank you so much guys, especially Tim Moores and Randy Tong.

It now works as expected!

I apologize if i ask stupid questions but i am still learning and you guys have taught me a lot over the last coupe of posts.
Thanks for bearing with me, most other forums like stackOverflow would've told me to get lost a long time ago.

You guys are awesome!
