Formatting Sandbox

first post here:

stackoverflow posts can be very complex (using formatting code and other elements).

hash appears to make heading... where is comment?

//sample code (java, android); let's see how this looks

public void onAttach(Activity activity) {
    super.onAttach(activity);

    mListener = (MPQGenDialogListener) getTargetFragment();
    if (null == mListener) {
        mListener = (MPQGenDialogListener) activity;
    }
    if (null == mListener) {
        throw new ClassCastException(activity.toString() + " must implement MPQGenDialogListener");
    }
} // END onAttach()

Where can one practice creating (and/or answering) *stackoverflow questions? [In effect I am attempting to answer that in this question, but I may get stricken down or a better method may be identified].

A "helloworld" tag would be nice/appropriate :-D .

What's wrong with the preview that appears below the textarea as you're typing? –  animuson Nov 5 '12 at 23:19
    
@animuson preview is ok, but it's not the full "post" experience (such as this interaction). Thx for feedback. –  donfede Nov 5 '12 at 23:27
    
i disagree with the duplicate closure -- my query was not only per a formatting sandbox, but per a stackoverflow sandbox. thx regardless. –  donfede Nov 8 '12 at 1:29

If the question/answer preview doesn't do it for you (it shows up below the input textbox), you can also use the Formatting Sandbox.

thx - the Formatting Sandbox is definitely interesting (and intimidating). I was looking more for the experience I got out of this post however. –  donfede Nov 5 '12 at 23:31
    
@donfede So if we downvote your question and then close it, that'll be more valuable experience? Anything to help... –  itsbruce Nov 6 '12 at 0:42
    
@itsbruce You're welcome to :) -- personally I think there is value in a sandbox environment (potentially without 'karma') to go through the experience. This run-through has been enough to get me to post a Q and answer a couple Q on "main". –  donfede Nov 6 '12 at 1:12
