To navigate to the about acitvity, you鈥檒l be working with something called an Intent. An Intent is just an object that that is used to communicate between components in Android. It is commonly used to communicate between activities. For example, it can be used to start another activity and it can also be used to send data between activities.

private fun navigateToAboutPage() {
    
}
val intent = Intent(this, AboutActivity::class.java)
startActivity(intent)
binding.infoButton?.setOnClickListener {
  navigateToAboutPage()
}
android:parentActivityName=".MainActivity"
android:screenOrientation="landscape"
title = getString(R.string.about_page_title)
  private lateinit var binding: ActivityAboutBinding

  override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
    ...
    binding = ActivityAboutBinding.inflate(layoutInflater)
    setContentView(binding.root)
    ...
binding.backButton?.setOnClickListener {
  finish()
}
