The following is the first few sections of a chapter from The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development, plus headings for the remaining major sections, to give you an idea about the content of the chapter.

Android Studio Editors and Dialogs

Eclipse, with the ADT plugin, had many structured editors and specialized dialogs for modifying Android project files and otherwise configuring Android project behavior.

Android Studio has fewer of those, and they are generally less critical. The editors and dialogs presented in this chapter can be useful, at least in some cases, but you do not need to use any of them to be able to create your Android projects. However, some may speed up your Android development a bit over working with bare resource and Gradle files.


Understanding this chapter requires that you have read the core chapters of this book, along with the chapter on Gradle and build variants.
