Passing multiple keys & values to activities

Android provides ability to invoke other Activities  (apps e.g. Camera) and pass in data in form of Key/Value pairs where Key-value pairs  carry additional information required to accomplish the requested action. For example, if using SDK, the following syntax is used to invoke ActivityTwo, passing it 2 key/value pairs.

Intent i = new Intent(this, ActivityTwo.class);
i.putExtra("Value1", "This value one for ActivityTwo ");
i.putExtra("Value2", "This value two ActivityTwo");

App Inventor, using ActivityStarter, allows you to accomplish the same. However, it is limited to passing only one key/value pair. For example to add a contact into contact list, the following blocks can be used:


The ActivityStarted in AiLiveComplete has been extended allowing you to pass in multiple key/value pairs. For example, blocks below show you how to invoke the Contacts and add in new contact and pass in multiple values:

imageThe above approach for passing multiple key/value pairs can be used for passing parameters to any other activity.
