Build and install

On Android Studio, click on the "Run" button.

If you prefer to run on the command line, type

./gradlew installDebug
adb shell am start com.example.androidthings.button/.ButtonActivity

If you have everything set up correctly, the LED will light up when you press the button and light off when you release it.

Enable auto-launch behavior

This sample app is currently configured to launch only when deployed from your development machine. To enable the main activity to launch automatically on boot, add the following intent-filter to the app's manifest file:

<activity ...>

    <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.HOME"/>
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/>
