I have a xml layout with three buttons and i assigned an activity to one of the buttons and it worked fine. When i went to do the second one i was confused about where in my class file i was suppose to add the code so i just made another one but it wouldnt work so my question is how do i assign those three button tasks in only one class file or do i do it a different way

you can use all three button in the same class. Suppose you have 3 buttons with 3 different id as

then you can use inner class as

Life is easy because we write the source code.....

You may want to create three different xml layouts for the three buttons...and did you see the startActivity() method ..... it will would be like..

Edit :

My mistake...i didnt see that one class..thing...i think you can use ... setContentView(YOUR XML LAYOUT ID) method....You can specify the XML LAYOUT ID according to button click....every xml layout should have the button layout on top of it...(Ofcourse button layout is another xml layout)
I agree. Here's the link:
