How do you make a rating/rate?

without an extension

You can use images for that.

  • Upload two images with one image being a filled star and the second being an outlined star.

  • Add five Image components horizontally in a horizontal arrangement (and set them to Clickable).

  • When an image is clicked, toggle the picture of the star. Fill all of the images in front of it and outline the rest.

O how do u make the thing filled when clicked? also if i need 5 stars do i upload 10?

5 Image components, but 2 image files in the Media section. You can reuse them.

Just set it to the Filled image.


Download them, upload them to the Media section, and add 5 Image components into the Viewer. Use a HorizontalArrangement to align them, and use the logic I told you in the Blocks.

wdym by setting it to a filled image?
also is there a way to make it save even after moving to another screen

Check the previous post. I have a filled star and an outlined star.

Yes, by saving it in TinyDB or passing it to another screen.

I suggest you read the following.

A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor’s Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook - the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book ‘teaches’ users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here:

Also do the tutorials at to learn the basics of App Inventor, then try something and follow the Top 5 Tips: How to learn App Inventor 2.
