However, it will also contain a call to the draw() method of the SBGSplash class. See Listing 2-22. Listing 2-22. multiplyMM(mMVPMatrix, 0, mProjMatrix, 0, mVMatrix, 0); } The final step in this solution is to set up the GLSurfaceView and call it from the main activity. Create the GLSurfaceView Create a new class called SBGGameView, as shown in Listing 2-23. Listing 2-23. GLSurfaceView; public class SBGGameView extends GLSurfaceView { public SBGGameView(Context context) { super(context); setRenderer(new SBGGameRenderer(context)); } } Notice that the only function of the GLSurfaceView is to set the Renderer to an instance of the Renderer that you created.

Unless you are creating a game with no player setup required, you can use Android to load these splash screens in the main activity thread, before the game thread even begins. The reason for this is simple. Most games prompt the player with a menu screen before the game starts. The menu screen can have options for anything from starting the game, to review scores, to logging into a web-based service. If your game will include this kind of menu system, you will want to start the menu in the main activity thread.

Tip Because findViewById() does not inherently know the type of the view you are finding, be sure to case the result as the proper type before assigning it. Listing 4-5. btnExit); } } All views have the method setOnClickListener(). That is all you need to complete the solution. Listing 4-6. setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener(){ @Override public void onClick(View v) { //TODO all of your exit code } }); } } Each OnClickListener() has an OnClick() method.
