    I've been working on my first Android app for a little while, and I pretty much have the user interface done. I've been very happy with my progress so far, but recently I ran into my first real problem.

    I need to get these values: [​IMG]

    and use them on the home screen part: [​IMG]

    I'd like to be able to save the name and percent and create a new entry on a table below the buttons that will display the name and the percent. After that, I want to be able to take input from here: [​IMG]

    And divide it amongst the categories.

    Any help is much appreciated, I'm of course not looking for someone to completely do the work for me, just lend me a helping hand.

    p.s. Sorry the pictures are big, didn't take the time to worry about resizing or anything like that.

    p.p.s. Remember that this is my first app, and I really haven't done much programming in my life before, so please explain everything like I'm a beginner.

    is that a Dialog or an Activity you have for entering in values?

    It looks like you only have 1 Activity (screenshot 2) with 2 Dialogs overlaying them (screenshot 1 and 3)
