How do I start another activity when a button defined in main.xml is clicked

I have two classes. One is Main and the other is HelloWorld. When I click a button which is defined in main.xml I want it to display a message defined in HelloWorld class to start. When i click the button it does not do anything.Code is given below. If anything else is required to put up let me know. Thanks

Main.java

public class Main extends MapActivity implements LocationListener {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
MapView map;
long start;
long stop;
int x, y;
GeoPoint touchedPoint;
Drawable d;
List<Overlay> overlayList;
LocationManager lm;
String towers;
int lat ;
int longi;





@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);

Button orderButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.button1);

orderButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(View view) {
Intent intent = new Intent(Main.this, HelloWorld.class);
startActivity(intent);
};
});

map = (MapView)findViewById(R.id.mv);
map.setBuiltInZoomControls(true);

Touchy t = new Touchy();
overlayList = map.getOverlays();
overlayList.add(t);



d = getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.pinn);



//Placing pintpoint
lm = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
Criteria crit = new Criteria();

towers = lm.getBestProvider(crit, false);
Location location = lm.getLastKnownLocation(towers);

if (location != null){
lat = (int) (location.getLatitude() *1E6);
longi= (int) (location.getLongitude() *1E6);



GeoPoint ourLocation = new GeoPoint(lat,longi);
OverlayItem overlayItem = new OverlayItem(ourLocation, "Hi!!", "2nd");
CustomPinPoint custom = new CustomPinPoint(d, Main.this);
custom.insertPinpoint(overlayItem);
overlayList.add(custom);
}else{
Toast.makeText(Main.this, "Couldnt get provider", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
}





}

@Override
protected void onPause() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

super.onPause();
lm.removeUpdates(this);
}


@Override
protected void onResume() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

super.onResume();
lm.requestLocationUpdates(towers, 500, 1, this );
}


@Override
protected boolean isRouteDisplayed() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
return false;
}



class Touchy extends Overlay{
public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent e, MapView m){
if (e.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN){
start = e.getEventTime();

}
if (e.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_UP){
stop = e.getEventTime();
x = (int) e.getX();
y = (int) e.getY();
touchedPoint = map.getProjection().fromPixels(x, y);

}
if (stop - start > 1500){
AlertDialog alert = new AlertDialog.Builder(Main.this).create();
alert.setTitle("Pick Option");


alert.setButton("Hello", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

OverlayItem overlayItem = new OverlayItem(touchedPoint, "Hi!!", "2nd");
CustomPinPoint custom = new CustomPinPoint(d, Main.this);
custom.insertPinpoint(overlayItem);
overlayList.add(custom);



}
});
alert.setButton3("Get Address", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(getBaseContext(), Locale.getDefault());
try{
List<Address> address = geocoder.getFromLocation(touchedPoint.getLatitudeE6() / 1E6, touchedPoint.getLongitudeE6() / 1E6 , 1);
if (address.size() > 0){
String display = "";
for (int i = 0; i<address.get(0).getMaxAddressLineIndex(); i++){

display += address.get(0).getAddressLine(i) + "\n";
}
Toast t = Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(), display, Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
t.show();
}
} catch (IOException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}finally{
}
}});
alert.setButton2("Toggle View", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

if (map.isSatellite()){
map.setSatellite(false);
map.setStreetView(true);
}else{
map.setStreetView(false);
map.setSatellite(true);
}
}
});


alert.setButton("Place a Pin", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

OverlayItem overlayItem = new OverlayItem(touchedPoint, "Hi!!", "2nd");
CustomPinPoint custom = new CustomPinPoint(d,Main.this);
custom.insertPinpoint(overlayItem);
overlayList.add(custom);

}


});
alert.show();
return true;
}

return false;
}

}



public void onLocationChanged(Location l) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
lat = (int) (l.getLatitude() *1E6);
longi = (int) (l.getLongitude() *1E6);
GeoPoint ourLocation = new GeoPoint(lat,longi);
OverlayItem overlayItem = new OverlayItem(ourLocation, "Hi!!", "2nd");
CustomPinPoint custom = new CustomPinPoint(d, Main.this);
custom.insertPinpoint(overlayItem);
overlayList.add(custom);

}




public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

}




public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

}




public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

}

}


HelloWorld.java

import com.google.android.maps.OverlayItem;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.app.AlertDialog;
import android.app.Dialog;
import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.Toast;


public class HelloWorld extends Activity
{

protected void onCreate(Bundle icicle) {
super.onCreate(icicle);
setContentView(R.layout.main);

Button button1 = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);
button1.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener()
{
public void onClick(View v)
{
Toast.makeText(HelloWorld.this, "you clicked on button![enter image description here][3]", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}
});


}
}

I have also written

<activity android:name=".HelloWorld" />


in my manifest

Answer

simple way

inlude android:onClick="onClickMyButton" as a attribute of Button in main.xml

remove onClickListener from this Button

now define this mathod in your Main Activity

public void onClickMyButton(View view){

Intent intent = new Intent(Main.this, HelloWorld.class);
        startActivity(intent);


}

now start your application it should work fine
