End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
   Activity.LoadLayout("1")
   ctxt.InitializeContext
 
End Sub

'Possible values: DEFAULT, HOME_SCREEN, STARTUP, PAUSE, EXIT, LEVEL_START, LEVEL_COMPLETE, ACHIEVEMENTS, LEADERBOARDS, STORE
Sub CreateAd (AdUnitId As String) As JavaObject
   Dim AdId As JavaObject
   AdId.InitializeStatic("com.appbrain.AdId")
   Dim builder As JavaObject
   builder = builder.InitializeStatic("com.appbrain.InterstitialBuilder").RunMethod("create", Null)
   builder.RunMethod("setAdId", Array(AdId.GetField(AdUnitId)))
   Dim listener As Object = builder.CreateEventFromUI("com.appbrain.InterstitialListener", "listener", Null)
   builder.RunMethod("setListener", Array(listener))
   builder.RunMethod("preload", Array(ctxt))
   Return builder
End Sub

Sub Listener_Event (MethodName As String, Args() As Object) As Object
   If Args <> Null Then
       Dim largs As List = Args
       Log(MethodName & ": " & largs)
   Else
       Log(MethodName)
   End If
   Return Null
End Sub

Sub Activity_Resume
   ad = CreateAd("DEFAULT")
End Sub

Sub Activity_Click
   ad.RunMethod("show", Array(ctxt)) 'show it
End Sub
Depends on: JavaObject

Google Translate ist hier sogar besseres Deutsch als das Original :D

Googles translation is, in this case, better than the Original :D

You must follow Erel's instructions, the additionaljar must be like this:
#AdditionalJar: appbrain-sdk-14.10.aar
don't use double quotes and you'll be ok.

Thanks, that was the missing step. :)

I have a question: I have created several banners in appbrain's web and, thanks to amidgeha and Erel, i can show a banner. Now, I'd want to show each of them in a different activity. How can I set the ID of the banner i want to use?
