Android :: To Unregister A Broadcast Receiver Register Registered In Manifest File

Mar 19, 2010

I have been able to register and unregister a broadcast receiver from the java code and know that a broadcast receiver is unregistered (even if it is not done explicitly) on its own as the process that registered it is killed. Now I have a broadcast receiver which has been registered through manifest file and not through the java code, and need to unregister the broadcast receiver from the java code. Since this, i think would need a reference to System context that instantiates the broadcast receiver.

Android :: Detect If Broadcast Receiver Is Registered?

Mar 11, 2010

I'm using more than 1 instance of MapActivity in an application that look different from each other. I'm running into an issue sometimes when leaving a MapActivity doesn't unregister it's BroadcastReceiver and going Back to resume the MapActivity page it tries to re-register the receiver again, thus receiving an Exception that Receiver already registered.

Anyone know of a way to tell if a Broadcastreceiver is registered and is listening?

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 :: Straight Forward Broadcast Receiver To Open / Read File

Apr 16, 2009

I would like my app to pop up in the list of options for opening certain file types in the various file manager, email, and web browser apps. I'm having trouble figuring out how to begin. I haven't found any examples of this sort of thing yet. Don't I need to know what kind of action the other app is trying to invoke on a selected file? How can I possibly know that? Or should I simply assume that all file manager, email, and browser apps will always use ACTION_VIEW or perhaps ACTION_EDIT when trying to send a file to another app? Must I simply assume this and hope I'm right? There are so many possible apps to try to get this to work with, how do I make it receive a "open-file" command from any arbitrary app? Is the code below correct so far? I have the following in the manifest:

<receiver android:enabled="true" android:exported="true" android:label="Some Label, where does this show up?" android:name=".MyBroadcastReceiver" >
<intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.ACTION_EDIT" />
</intent-filter> <intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.ACTION_VIEW" /> </intent-filter> </receiver>

I don't see how to specify a file-type or file extension filter in the receiver. How do I do this? Likewise I have the following in the receiver:

public class MyBroadcastReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
@Override public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
if (intent.getAction().equals("android.intent.action.ACTION_EDIT")
|| intent.getAction().equals("android.intent.action.ACTION_VIEW")) {
Uri uri = intent.getData(); String uriStr = intent.getDataString();
} } }

Android :: ACTION_USER_PRESENT BroadcastReceiver Not Be Registered In The Manifest?

Aug 30, 2010

I see that multiple broadcasts (ACTION_TIME_TICK, for example) cannot be registered in the manifest, the must be explicitly registered via Context.registerReceiver(). I am having trouble with the ACTION_USER_PRESENT broadcast intent. Specifically, I test on the emulator and my application keeps force closing with the error:

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

This is caused by

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

My manifest is fairly simple:

CODE:........

I am essentially attempting to create a Receiver that is awakened as soon as possible after my application is installed. The first time it is awakened, it registers a few listeners, and then it unregisters itself so it is never called again. (I really wish there was an intent fired immediately after your app had been installed, to allow a small bit of setup.

Android :: RegisterReceiver For Broadcast Only If It's Not Already Registered?

Jan 26, 2010

I have a snippet of code that I'm calling from a service:

CODE:........

What I would like is a way to check and make sure that the registerReceiver isnt already listening before it calls it again. Is this possible?

For example if my snippet of code is in a method, and I call the method 10 times, right now the onReceive method appears to run 10 times.

Android :: Finding Which Broadcast Receivers Are Registered?

Jul 2, 2010

I have a program that monitors incoming SMS's, and I want it to monitor them full-time, so I registerReceiver with a Broadcast receiver that I've created. The problem is, if I want to unregister that receiver, I can't unless I know the original Broadcast Receiver class I registered. This is not a problem if I set it to stop when the program stops, but I want the receiver to keep running, only stopping when the user specifies. EDIT: Or is there a way of "Storing" the Broadcast Receiver class that I've created, such that when onDestroy is called it can be saved and when create is called again it can be pulled out.Is there any way of doing this?

Android :: Check If There Are Registered Broadcast Listeners?

Mar 22, 2009

Is there a way to check before sending a broadcast (from a remote service) whether there are registered broadcast listeners? What I'd like to do is to send broadcasts only if there are registered listeners, otherwise make a toast. Does it make any sense?

Android :: Can't Register To Receive Screen Off Intents From Manifest

Aug 24, 2010

I have an application that listens for screen off, and user present intents. Since you cant register to receive screen off intents from the manifest, I am registering them in a service. Do I really need to have a whole service to ensure that I always get notified of when the screen shuts off, and the user unlocks the phone? Seems really wasteful :-(

The code I use in my service:

@Override
public void onCreate() {
super.onCreate();
Log.d(TAG, "Service created.");
// register receiver that handles user unlock and screen off logic
IntentFilter filter = new IntentFilter(Intent.ACTION_USER_PRESENT);
filter.addAction(Intent.ACTION_SCREEN_OFF);
BroadcastReceiver mReceiver = new ScreenReceiver();
registerReceiver(mReceiver, filter);
}

Is this fixed or is it necessary to create a workaround subclass?

Android :: Registered Broadcast Receivers After Application Is Killed?

Mar 25, 2010

Currently my application is configured to always receive the CONNECTIVITY_CHANGED action to force an update if the previous update failed because there was no connectivity. What I don't like about this is that the broadcast receiver gets to be called too many times although it is not needed. I was thinking to register my broadcast receiver only if an update failed using the Context.registerReceiver(BroadcastReceiver receiver, IntentFilter filter) method. But I'm not so sure if this is a good idea. I'm concerned that if my application is evicted from memory the broadcast receiver will be unregistered or lost and my application will not be notified about the future CONNECTIVITY_CHANGED actions. The update is done in a short lived service. So if the update fails, the service will register the broadcast receiver just before it ends its execution time. Can somebody explain what happens to my broadcast receiver after the application is evicted from memory?

Android :: Remote Callback List Register Called On One Thread Broadcast Initiated

Feb 12, 2009

I'm an experienced C++/Java dev who has been truly enjoying that past two days of getting neck deep into the Android SDK. I can foresee a lot of sleepless nights ahead Now, being arrogant due to experience (lol) I basically wrote a hello world Activity, got it to work and promptly decided to write an out of process service with accompanying client for project #2. Android is so well thought out (if not exactly documented although that's an 'over time' issue inmho) that I had basically implented everything but callbacks into the client before realizing (and feeling like a total idiot) that there's a very nice example called RemoteService (lol @ me - again) Basically, this validated everything I'd been doing, although I did notice that because my client is in its own project and namespace and my service is in another project and namespace (but the same Eclipse workspace) that I had to have the service entry in my service's manifest AND my client's manifest (that one took me a while to figure out) in order to bind on the service. Anyhow, everything's great, I am starting to love on Android (figuratively) but I've run into <BRITISH-NESS>a bit of a sticky wicket, eh, wot?</BRITISH-NESS>.

When my client Activity binds on my service (which is running in its own process) and calls the equivalent of 'registerCallback', the interface is added perfectly to the RemoteCallbackList object and I can immediately (right on the next line of code) use the interface to send a notification to the client. Now, my problem is that when my main service thread tries to pull the interface out of the RemoteCallbackList via the broadcast methods, the RemoteCallbackList is always 'empty' - it returns 0 from beginBroadcast. After double checking ensure that I AM actually adding it to the list (because I've been a collossal idiot before) and that I am getting success back from 'register', I immediately think it's a threading issue, so: I add logging code to the service in key places to log what the thread id is repeatedly, and I think "uh, I think I need to use a handler of some sort to make the call back in the thread that handled the registration" and to double check I call beginBroadcast right after 'register' and find that it always returns back the correct number of callback interfaces. So it VERY much appears to be a threading issue (to me) so now I'm a bit stuck I've written a handler so that my main service thread can request the correct thread to actually call 'beginBroadcast' and then thought 'how is it going to know what thread that is...?' and instead am now thinking I need to pass, via a handler or something, the incoming interface from the thread that runs when the client calls the equivalent of 'registerCallback' to my main service thread. What part of the proper paradigm am I missing? BTW, as an example of the thread IDs, my main service thread is #1, the runnable I use for tasks in the main service thread shows an ID of #1, the message handler I was thinking I could use, shows an ID of #1, but the thread ID I get in my code in the service that runs when the user registers their callback is #7.

If I plan to notify clients when the service notices something it thinks they need to know, do I need to notify (somehow) the clients via the thread with ID #7 or do I need to pass the interface I get when the user registers their callback from thread #7 to thread #1 and call 'register' on the RemoteCallbackList from thread #1? Sorry for the verbosity but I figured more is better than less. Again, everything works great except this one little part.

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

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"
