Android : Start Activity From Within OnReceive Method Of BroadcastReceiver?

Feb 3, 2009

I am trying to get a UI to present itself when an incoming SMS happens. When that happens, I would like to present a UI to the user.

I have a BroadcastReceiver class that listens to the SMS_RECEIVED event. I also have an Activity class that is capable of displaying the needed UI when the event happens.

The questions is: How do I start the activity from within the onReceive method of BroadcastReceiver?

I know others have done this but I can't seem to find any resources that illustrates how.

Android : Can I Initiate Threads In BroadcastReceiver's OnReceive Method?

Dec 18, 2009

My application has two components,one is Activity and BroadcastReceiver. I am using the BroadcastReceiver as inner class of my Application. The BroadcastReceiver's onReceive method is initiating a new Thread as Thread object,every time. In that i am trying to update the activity if it is in fore ground.If it is in back ground i am simply ignoring. But some times my application is hanging as my application's "HeapWorker" thread is taking 80-90% of the CPU.

Android : How To Redirect BroadcastReceiver OnReceive?

Oct 13, 2010

What's the correct way (if any) to redirect a received Intent to another BroadcastReceiver? I have two BroadcastReceivers set to listen to the same intent. It works in development, but in production, only the first one registered in the manifest gets the intent. Can I call the other one's onReceive() method directly, passing the same context and intent? Is there a better way to pass the intent along once the first receiver is done with it?

Android :: App Contains BroadcastReceiver And Activity

Aug 6, 2009

I want to start a project which contains a BroadcastReceiver and an Activity. The BroadcastReceiver doesn't communicate with the activity. But they share a same resource. Can i do it in only one Project (that means, i use only 1 apk to install both BroadcastReceiver and the Activity on my phone), or i have to develope them seperately in 2 projects.

Android :: BroadcastReceiver Communicating With Activity

Feb 26, 2009

Is it possible to update a currently running activity from a BroadcastReceiver? I want to update my activity from a BroadcastReceiver that runs alongside it. When I run my app (from Eclipse), my activity starts. When the BroadcastReceiver is triggered, it currently tries to start the activity (with extras in the bundle...this is the important part), but nothing happens, presumably because the activity is already running. So my question is, how do I get the new information to my Activity (or even just tell the activity that there's new information to get if I stick the information in a database)? This seems like it should be fairly straightforward, but I'm clearly missing something.

Android :: Dataflow Between BroadcastReceiver ContentProvider And Activity?

Mar 19, 2009

I've developed an application that receives a Broadcast and then launches an Activity, where that Activity queries a ContentProvider which pulls information out of the DNS in real-time.

I'd like to be able to shuffle this so that instead of going:

CODE:.......

It goes:

CODE:.......

i.e. if the query() returns no data I want to miss out launching the activity, and allow the Broadcast message to fall through as normal.

If the query() does return data, I want that Cursor to be supplied to the Activity, so that I don't have to go and query for the data again.

In turn, the Activity has its own UI which the user needs to respond to.

Android :: How To Unicast An Intent To An Activity With Inner BroadCastReceiver

Aug 18, 2010

I have 2 Activities that need to communicate with each other: ActivityA and ActivityB

Say that ActivityA opens ActivityB. How do I unicast a message from ActivityB to ActivityA without closing ActivityB?

Here's what I tried: setResult() - but the intent will be delivered only when ActivityB closes sendBroadcast() - but this sends the intent to everyone listening to the action.

I only want the action to reach ActivityA since it spawned ActivityB.

I tried having ActivityA registering a BroadCast receiver, but I cannot target that via Intent's SetComponentName(). startActivity() - this brings up ActivityA, which I don't want.

Android :: Best Practice On Updating UI From BroadcastReceiver To A Certain Activity?

Jul 18, 2010

When i have a broadcastReceiver say android.intent.action.MEDIA_BUTTON and i want to update the current activity's UI without creating a new activity, is there any good practice on this one?

What i know (might not be correct)

1) I can put the BroadcastReceiver in the same class as the activity and call the updateUI function after certain activity

2) Create a ContentObserver?

3) Communicate to a service created by the activity, use aidl. (I dont know how to get the current service if its registered from an activity)

4) Create a custom filter on the broadcastReceiver located on the same class as the activity, and use context.sendBroadcast(msg of custom filter) and in the custom filter call updateUI (same as one but more generic?)

The final flow is it would come from a BroadcastReceiver and ends up updating the UI without renewing the activity (unless the activity is dead?)

Kindly provide links/source code on your how you tackle this kind of problem.

Android : Inform Activity From A BroadcastReceiver ONLY If It Is In The Foreground

Feb 17, 2010

Maybe it's easy, but I couldn't really figure this out right so far... I got a BroadcastReceiver waiting to get triggered by the AlarmMangager - this works fine.

Now: because the event, if it occurs, needs to refresh some elements on screen of the main Activity, I would like to send an Intent from that background BroadcastReceiver to my Activity - but only if it is currently in the foreground, aka active.

If it is not running or not visible, I don't care - and the last thing I want to do is start the Activity by my intent! I handle repainting of the views in my onResume method, so I don't care at all.

EDIT: my BroadcastReceiver is waiting for alarms that must be notified to the user. So, it must be there and declared in the manifest. The problem is: it will have to decide whether the mentioned Activity is currently up in front or not.

Android :: Pass Data From BroadcastReceiver Through To Activity Being Started?

Apr 11, 2010

I've got an Android application which needs to be woken up sporadically throughout the day.To do this, I'm using the AlarmManager to set up a PendingIntent and have this trigger a BroadcastReceiver. This BroadcastReceiver then starts an Activity to bring the UI to the foreground.All of the above seems to work, in that the Activity launches itself correctly; but I'd like the BroadcastReceiver to notify the Activity that it was started by the alarm (as opposed to being started by the user). To do this I'm trying, from the onReceive() method of the BroadcastReceiver to set a variable in the extras bundle of the intent,Can anyone tell me what's different about passing a bundle from a BroadcastReceiver to an Activity, as opposed to passing the bundle from an Activity to a BroadcastReceiver?

Android :: Start An Activity And Return Back To Original Activity

Jan 26, 2009

I have an application with contains multiple activities. The main activity will start the others ( use startActivity() ) depends on user event, when an activity close, it calls finish() and return back to main activity. It appears to behavior like that.

However, the "problem" I see is main activity's onCreate function is called every time. I think the the main activity should be placed in the activity stack and simply push to front when others exit, therefore only onResume, onStart are called. Is there some flag I need to set or I misunderstand the activity behaviro?

In child activity, besides calling finish() or startActivity for main activity, what is other way to move main activity to front?

Android :: Start Activity When Main Activity Is Running In Background

Jan 10, 2010

I created an application which enables the user to set whether he wants to receive notification while the application runs in background mode. If the notifications are enabled an activity should be started (the dialog should appear on the screen).

I tried to enabled it the following way:

CODE:...........

This is the method from main activity. When onPause() is executed isRunningInBackground is set true.
When I tried to debug it when the main application was running in the background the line

startActivity(intent) had no effect (the activity didn't appear).

Does anyone know how to midify the logic in order to start an activity from the main activity when the main activity is running in the background (after onPause() is called)?

Android :: Is It Legal To Call Start Method Twice On Same Thread?

Aug 1, 2009

The following code leads to "java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException: Thread already started." the second time it is run through on the program This happens the second time updateUI.start() is called. I've stepped through it multiple times and the thread is called and completely runs to completion before hitting updateUI.start(). Calling updateUI.run() avoids the error but causes the thread to run in the UI thread (the calling thread, as mentioned in other posts on SO), which is not what I want. Can a Thread be started only once? If so than what do I do if I want to run the thread again? This particular thread is doing some calculation in the background, if I don't do it in the thread than it's done in the UI thread and the user has an unreasonably long wait.

Android :: Start An Activity In Different Apk Using StartActivity - Using The Activity Name Or Similar

Apr 20, 2010

I have tried to write an Android application with an activity that should be launched from a different application. It is not a content provider, just an app with a gui that should not be listed among the installed applications. I have tried the code examples here and it seems to be quite easy to launch existing providers and so on, but I fail to figure out how to just write a "hidden" app and launch it from a different one.

The basic use case is:

App A is a normal apk launchable from the application list.

App B is a different apk with known package and activity names, but is is not visible or launchable from the application list.

App A launches app B using the package and class names (or perhaps a URI constructed from these?).

I fail in the third step. Is it possible to do this?
