Temperature conversion application in Android

This is another simple android application which converts temperature into Celsius and Fahrenheit. Here we are taking a temperature value in edit text box and checking radio buttons and converting into checked temperature. So, create your new project and drop one edit box, two radio buttons, one text view and one simple button. The code of android XML file is given below:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/ll"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical" >
    <EditText
        android:id="@+id/editText1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:inputType="numberDecimal" >
    </EditText>
    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/result"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:textSize="30sp" />
            <RadioGroup
            android:id="@+id/radioGroup1"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" >
            <RadioButton
                android:id="@+id/cb"
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:checked="true"
                android:text="Celcius" />
            <RadioButton
                android:id="@+id/fb"
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:text="Fahrenhiet" />
        </RadioGroup>
    <Button
        android:id="@+id/button1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:onClick="add"
        android:text="Convert"
        android:textSize="30sp" />
 </LinearLayout>

Now open your Java file and initialize all objects. Get value from edit text box in a double type variable and convert into given temperature according to checked radio button and display it to text view. The code of android Java file is given with explanation:

package com.innosen; //your package name 
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.LinearLayout;
import android.widget.RadioButton;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.graphics.Color;
public class MainActivity extends Activity {
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    }
    public void add(View v)
    {
      LinearLayout ll=(LinearLayout)findViewById(R.id.ll);
      TextView result=(TextView)findViewById(R.id.result);
      EditText et1=(EditText)findViewById(R.id.editText1);

      //get value from edit text box and convert into double
      double a=Double.parseDouble(String.valueOf(et1.getText()));
      RadioButton cb=(RadioButton)findViewById(R.id.cb);
      RadioButton fb=(RadioButton)findViewById(R.id.fb);

      //check which radio button is checked
      if(cb.isChecked())
      {
      //change background colour     
      ll.setBackgroundColor(Color.YELLOW);
      //display conversion
      result.setText(f2c(a)+" degree C");
      //cb.setChecked(false);
      fb.setChecked(true);
      }
      else
      {
            ll.setBackgroundColor(Color.CYAN);
            result.setText(c2f(a)+" degree F");
            //fb.setChecked(false);
            cb.setChecked(true);
      }
    }
   //Celcius to Fahrenhiet method 
   private double c2f(double c)
   {
         return (c*9)/5+32;
   }
   //Fahrenhiet to Celcius method
   private double f2c(double f)
   {
         return (f-32)*5/9;
   }  
}

Now run your project and test application. If you have any problem with the above code please comment.

  4. Excellent tutorials Mohsin.
    Note: pressing "convert" with a blank input stops the app.
    Can you add elseif in the app to capture the "no input"?.
