android – Button to go back to MainActivity-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I want to create a button that would lead the user straight back to main activity which doesn’t have the android name=”com.example.example”.
It has android.intent.etc…
How can I reference my button to go back to this activity?

How to solve:

Lets say your main activity is called

btnBack.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener(){

  private void onClick(){
    Intent intent = new Intent(currentActivity.this, Main.class);


use startActivity(intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP));


Sometimes you can just call activity.finish() to end current activity, so the main (first created) activity will pop out.

If this is not your case, do this:

Intent intent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(), Main.class);


Intent intent = new Intent(this, Main.class);


Well from wherever you are just call startActivity() with the required parameters inside the buttons onClick method. That’s it.


public void onBackPressed(){
