Android Question Activity.Finish: What does it mean?

    Good evening

    unfortunately, the Docs
    for Activity.Finish is very sparse:
    Therefore my question to understand and prevent Bugs in my App:
    Does Activity.Finish just cleans up internal B4A resources
    or does it handle e.g. necessary Android tasks?

    (I could imagine that B4A sends a signal to Android, for example, that an action has been received and processed so that Android does not have to search for another recipient.)

    if there is a pendant for Activity.Finish in Android Java, then a link in those docs would be very helpful.

    Thanks a lot, kind regards,

    think it closed a form/window and you can not use the back key to open it again.
    it is the opposite of Activity_Create

    at android if you have more than one activity in your app, one is active and the others are in pause mode.

    you can navigate & exchange data between activitys with CallSubDelayed2
