Android :: Save Data In Broadcast Receiver

Jul 2, 2010

I'd like to maintain a hash table in a broadcast receiver. If I understand BroadcastReceiver's life cycle currently it could get killed wiping out my member variables. What would be the ideal strategy for retrieving a hash table from a previous run of onReceive in the BroadcastReceiver?

Android :: Broadcast Receiver - Create A Broadcast Receiver Which Responds To System Events

Sep 28, 2009

trying to create a broadcast receiver which responds to system events and change system settings. I don't need any interaction from the user so I don't need an activity and have been trying to do everything through the manifest file. I've put a log event into my onReceive method but it never logs anything so I'm presuming my method is never called. I've tried this with both the 1.5 and 1.6 SDKs. I was hoping somebody could have a look at my code please and let me know if there are any problems.

Android :: Data Lost When Sending Bundle With PendingIntent To Broadcast Receiver

Sep 16, 2010

I am adding some basic alarm functionality to my program via the use of AlarmManager and a BroadcastReceiver class (named AReceiver.java). My problem is that the data I add to the bundle attached to the Intent creating the PendingIntent appears to be lost. The only bundle data I can access in the AReceiver class is a android.intent.extra.ALARM_COUNT=1. Here is the basic code in the main activity class creating the Intent, PendingIntent and the AlarmManager: [Code in main activity - Notepadv3]

Intent intent = new Intent(Notepadv3.this, AReceiver.class);
intent.putExtra("teststring","hello, passed string in Extra");
PendingIntent alarmIntent = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(this, pendingPeriodIntentId, intent, 0);
AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager) getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, timeOfNextPeriod.getTimeInMillis(), alarmIntent);..................

Android :: Broadcast Receiver Without Activity

Feb 12, 2010

A WAP PUSH (Broadcast)receiver basically doesn't need any UI. It is a silence application which handles the Push messages based on actions/ mimetype without needing any intreaction with user, I've tried to test it in a SMS receiver by removing the Activity from the project and it stopped receiving the SMS messages. My question: Does all android applications "MUST" define a activity? Is there a way to hide it?

Android :: Broadcast Receiver From Widget

Dec 2, 2009

I am making a widget that needs a broadcast receiver, like the one in com.example.android.apis.appwidget.ExampleBroadcastReceiver. However, the example defines Intent.ACTION_TIMEZONE_CHANGED in the manifest, but there are some that do not allow this. For example, Intent.ACTION_TIME_TICK says "You can not receive this through components declared in manifests, only by exlicitly registering for it with Context.registerReceiver(). "

So I removed the manifest declarations and tried replacing the AppWidgetProvider.onEnabled function that was in the example with a call like the following: context.registerReceiver(myReceiver, new IntentFilter(Intent.ACTION_TIME_TICK));
(where "myReceiver" is an instance of the receiver I want.) However, when I try to run the code, I get the following error:
Unable to start receiver...android.content.ReceiverCallNotAllowedException: IntentReceiver components are not allowed to register to receive intents.
Any way to get this broadcast receiver working from a widget?

Android :: Broadcast Receiver Sometimes Works

Jan 6, 2010

I wish to listen to android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED. However I am not getting the broadcast intent, if I specify com.test.BootBroadcastReceiver in the manifest. When I change this value to simply BootBroadcastReceiver, then I am getting the broadcast intent.

<receiver android:name="BootBroadcastReceiver" android:enabled="true">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED" />
</intent-filter>
</receiver>

My package in the manifest file is:
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.test"
And the BootBroadcastReceiver resides in this package. What is the reason behind this?

Android :: Broadcast Receiver For Sent SMS Messages?

Jun 13, 2009

I created a BroadcastReceiver and configured it with an android.provider.Telephony.SMS_RECEIVED action filter so it is called everytime the phone receives a text.Is there some event/action or other way for my application to be notified whenever the phone sends a text (preferably independent of the application that sends it)?So far the only option I see is to poll the content provider for content://sms/sent which doesn't even give me all sent texts because applications can choose not to put it there.

Android :: Set Priority To Broadcast Receiver

Oct 24, 2010

The symptom: I have a broadcast receiver that listen to sms, when a sms is received, i call an activity to display. It works all fine if the screen is on and not locked. But when screen is locked, and as soon as i received the sms, the activity popup for a second then disappeared and I use the code to unlock the screen.

getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_TURN_SCREEN_ON);
getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED | WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD);

I think it might be the competitions with phone default sms program (the sms default program shows a notification only). I am wondering is there a way to set priority to broadcast receivers or even the activity that receiver stared, to avoid the conflicts between multiple receivers. or set orders to execute one by one? I have tried to thread.sleep my receiver for a second, still not working.

Android :: How To Use Intents From Service Or Broadcast Receiver?

Dec 15, 2009

I need to be able to handle/catch Intents while my Activity is closed. So I am looking at either a Service or a BroadcastReceiver. Is it possible to "receive" intents to a service itself? I tried to search, but could not find anything helpful. With a BroadcastReceiver, I am not exactly sure how that works outside of an Activity. Does it depend on the Activity being open/running? Can it run by itself?

Let's say that my Activity is killed by Android(or a task killer app), does the BroadcastReceiver still receive intents and process them? I have used a BroadcastReceiver as a widget, but I do not want to use a widget this time. My goal is to have the user open the Activity to set some options. From there, they would be able to close the Activity, but I would still be able to process Intents that were sent out by the system. I am still fairly new to Android development, so I could be so far away from where I need to be.

Android :: Error In Receiving SMS Using Broadcast Receiver

I'm trying to receive SMS using broadcast receiver. MySMSReceiver :

import android.content.BroadcastReceiver;
import android.content.Context;

import android.telephony.SmsMessage;
import android.util.Log;

public class MySmsReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
/** Tag string for our debug logs */
private static final String TAG = "MySmsReceiver";
@Override
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
Log.i(TAG, "Recieved a message");
Bundle extras = intent.getExtras();
if (extras == null)
return;
Object[] pdus = (Object[]) extras.get("pdus");
for (int i = 0; i < pdus.length; i++) {
SmsMessage message = SmsMessage.createFromPdu((byte[]) pdus[i]);
String fromAddress = message.getOriginatingAddress();
String fromDisplayName = fromAddress;

Log.i(TAG, fromAddress);
Log.i(TAG, fromDisplayName);
Log.i(TAG, message.getMessageBody().toString());
break; } } }

and added in Mainfest file
<receiver android:name=".MySmsReceiver" android:enabled="false">

Android :: Understanding Broadcast Receiver / Way Of Activate It

Mar 25, 2010

I am trying to understand the use of the broadcast receiver and the way of activate it. There's two ways isn't it? Register it from an activity or declare it in the manifest. So my question is: If I code a broadcast receiver which is watching incoming messages and I register it in the manifest, when a message comes my broadcast receiver will catch it automatically although any activity of my app had registered it. In a nutshells, I don't have to activate it so it works, only register it either in the manifest or in an activity.

Android :: Broadcast Receiver Not Getting Called When Expected

Dec 27, 2009

I have a service that gets updated every x minutes depending on the user preferences. This service connects to a web service and pulls some data. If during an update the user has no connection I register my receiver and start listening for changes (ConnectivityManager.CONNECTIVITY_ACTION), the thing is that onReceive () only gets called on every update instead of firing onReceived as soon as I plug the connection back in. Have I understood the concept of Broadcast Receiver wrong? Is it not suppose to send a notification as soon as it detetcs a change in the connection?

Android :: Broadcast Receiver / Service & Thread

Jun 23, 2010

I am starting to develop a new app and I am a bit confused about the structure I need to give it.I need to react to broadcast intents, so I placed a broadcast received in the manifest. Every single intent produces an action to be performed. Now the first question: should I start a service (maybe with non_sticky option?) or should I start a thread (or an async task) directly from the broadcast receiver? If I start a service, should I do all the stuff in its body, or should it start a thread. I should do the heavy job in a thread if there are time consuming operations, but what if the gui of my application is just an activity with the options and a button to start the service. What is the point in keeping the main thread busy? Do I risk to be killed for not being responsive? I read here and there that I can update the gui from a background thread. Can I do that even if it is started from a service? The AsyncTask's onProgressUpdate is said to run in the application main thread, but if the application is made of different activities, who tells me which activity is the user looking at while the thread is doing all its long work? The user could change activity in the meanwhile and then the update would be unuseful.I know it's (quite) a lot of questions, but I need to get some clarifications before taking the wrong path.

That other class never has it's onReceive method called...

Android :: Refresh Activities From Broadcast Receiver

May 6, 2010

I'm currntly struggling with an Android problem whose answer is maybe simple.(I'm new in Android developing)I have a main activity that builds a TabHost with two Tabs (each represents another Activity)As far as I know I can't receive broadcast messages within an activity - so the only thing I could do is to start a new activity out of my Broadcast Receiver. But instead I want to change my Tab View or show the alert.Are there any possibilities to access an existing Activity from a broadcast receiver class?

Android :: Slickest Way To Use Broadcast Receiver In A Singleton?

Sep 17, 2010

I have a singleton which stores some prudent information about the user of my application. At the moment, it stores the user's login and the user's location.The location is found via a Service. At the moment, the Service references my singleton directly to stuff the longitude and latitude into it. I would like to use a Broadcast Receiver to send a broadcast that the singleton hears and uses to update the values, instead. However, to register the Broadcast Receiver, I need a Context in my singleton. What is the slickest way to achieve what I'm wanting. Is Broadcast Receiver possibly not the appropriate object? Also, what problems am I looking at with using a singleton? I assume that Android will possibly reclaim this memory at any given time (which would obviously be bad); so how can I prevent that? Would passing in the application's Context and storing it in a member variable thwart this? The Android documentation states: "But, the life cycle of a static is not well under your control; so to abide by the life-cycle model, the application class should initiate and tear down these static objects in the onCreate() and on Terminate() methods of the Application Class," but I'm not entirely sure how to accomplish this.

Android :: Playing Ringtons In Broadcast Receiver

Nov 3, 2010

I use pending_intents and a broadcast_receiver for pending events processing. When the broadcast_receiver receives an intent it creates an instance of a ringtone with STREAM_NOTIFICATION and `play()' it. But sounds is late for a few dozen minutes. I have checked that the pending_intens are come in proper time and the broadcast_receiver processes them properly. It seems there is a problem with playing notifications while a phone stay in sleep mode (screen is off). Somebody know how to bypass the problem?

Android :: Change Broadcast Receiver Priority

May 5, 2009

I have developed a music player and the application defines a broadcast receiver that handles MediaButton intents:

<application...>
<receiver android:name="MediaButtonIntentReceiver"> <intent-filter android:priority="32000"> <action android:name="android.intent.action.MEDIA_BUTTON"/> </intent-filter> </receiver>
</application>

which works well. My question is if it was possible to change the priority of this receiver from within the settings activity of my application. That way people could choose if they wanted my player as default handler of the headset buttons or not.
