Using Dialog Boxes in Android Development

I am rewriting my previous articles on Client Server Communication in Android as they are old and do not follow the best market practices (I was too young in android development that time to know the truth). They’ll hit the blog in a few days [No ETAs]. While I was working on the same project, I got need of creating a dialog box in my app to display some information about the app and credits.

Simple Client Server Communication In Android

I was working of an android project recently and now I guess .. I am done with my part. Yeah its a team of 4 and the project was divided accordingly. One of the responsibilities I was assigned was the development of Online Leader Board. While I was working, I searched through Internet and found a few examples as well, – I wonder which question Google couldn’t answer?

All of them were either to much complicatedly explained or didn’t cover the complete concepts behind a complete Client Server Communication In Android. Either the writers were assuming that the person who’ll land of this page will be intelligent enough to guess the other part or were simple not interested of posting a complete solution to someone’s problem. And for the same reason I am writing this post, so if someone else lands on this page while searching the same problem he/she could find a complete solution to their needs.
