    Default Linking Java to a website for android app

    Hey guys, I think this is the best place to post this. Could not find any good site to ask this. But here goes,

    I am making a simple app, and I need the text to link to a webpage. The App randomly generates a set word each time the button is pressed. Here is the code.

    This is a small amount of the code but it continues down for about 30 more if else.

    			public void onClick(View arg0) {
    				// When the Button is Clicked
    			String answer = "";
     
    			//Random Answer Yes, No, or Maybe
    			Random randomGenerator = new Random();
    			int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(30);
     
    			if (randomNumber == 0) {
    				answer = "TEXT HERE!";
     
    			}
    			else if (randomNumber == 1) {
    				answer = "TEXT HERE!";
     
    			}
    			else if (randomNumber == 2) {
    				answer = "TEXT HERE!";
    			}
    			else if (randomNumber == 3) {
    				answer = "TEXT HERE!";
    			}

    how would I go about linking those words to a webpage? The links will be different though. So not all of the words will link to the same page.

    Thanks

    You would need to add this to the button event:

    String url = "www.wherever.com"
    java.awt.Desktop.getDesktop().browse(java.net.URI. create(url));


    That SHOULD open up the url in the default browser.
