    Question Drawing a rectangle

    Im new to android but ive followed some beginner tutorials.
    They always expain how to make a message box or input box.
    But my question is: how do I create a rectangle?
    Ive done some research, this "should" be it:

    Paint myPaint = new Paint();
    myPaint.setColor(Color.rgb(0, 0, 0));
    c.drawRect(100, 100, 200, 200, myPaint);
    But the variable c is not defined.
    Im guessing c is bitmap.
    If so, then:
    createBitmap(int width, int height, Bitmap.Config config)
    Should be it, but I have no idea what Config.config is.
    How can i make this work?

    I think it would be smart for you to buy a book and study the basics of object oriented programming in Java. Your question contains so many wrong assumptions that it is impossible to answer.
