Android :: Starting Translucent Activity From Broadcast Receiver

Sep 30, 2010

I got a graphical problem regarding the Translucent theme at Samsung Galaxy i9000.It works well in the emulator with android version ranging from 1.6 to 2.2 as well as on SE x10 mini.I have yet to test on more devices.I am starting an activity from a broadcast receiver. The activity started got the theme @android:style/Theme.Translucent If all the activities in my application are destroyed when the broadcast occurs, then the new activity got a working translucent theme and is presented on top of the activity currently in front. However, if the user left the application with the HOME-key, not destroying the activity, I get a graphical bug when the broadcast triggers. The application gets brought to the front with the activity the user last visited showing instead of the new activity that I started from my broadcast receiver. When I press the back key I can see my Translucent activity quickly showing itself and then getting destroyed.This flow results in the graphical bug: Start application. Activity A will be shown. Leave application by pressing HOME-key. Home screen is shown. Trigger broadcast. Start activity B.

Application gets brought to foreground and activity A is shown. Press BACK-key. Activity B quickly shows itself and disappears. Now activity A is shown.Also, after activity B is started and when activity A is shown in its place. Pressing the screen will triggers buttons that belong in activity B even if the user can't see them. If I remove the theme, then activity B will show itself when it's supposed to.Is there anyone else who have encountered a similar problem? Is there any good workarounds I can apply? (I don't want to rebind home to finish all activities) Is the problem my fault or can there possibly be some glitch in Touchwiz?

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 :: 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 / Service Will Only Restart Activity Once

Mar 17, 2010

I have a single Activity application, within it I have a service which creates an AlarmManager and sends a broadcast to a broadcast Receiver.If the activity which starts the services dies, (ie. divide by zero), the broadcast receiver stops the old service which created the AlarmManager.It works the first time. The second time, it does not.It seems like the AlarmManager is still active but the broadcast receiver is no longer receiving. It works great once!

Android :: Starting Activity From Service / Receiver?

Oct 27, 2009

I have a service that sometimes starts applications.The problem is: if the *previous app* (any app) was recently exited via the home key, then the following message appears in the log:ActivityManager: Activity start request from 10024 stopped.And there's then around a 5 second delay before the target app (any) is launched.If the previous app was exited with the back key, there's no problem.If the previous app exited more than a few second ago, no problem.The same also occurs with a broadcast receiver (which also requires the NEW_TASK intent flag to launch an activity).I don't know if the delay was there in 1.5, but I'm assuming not since I can't find the error message in the 1.5 source code.

Android :: Android - SMS Broadcast Receiver / No Launcher Activity Found

Nov 7, 2010

I have been trying to get this program to work but so far having no luck. I cannot find where I am doing wrong. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the code, or debugging.

Here is my program:
package Technicaljar.SMSBroadcastReceiver;
import android.content.BroadcastReceiver;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.telephony.SmsMessage;
import android.util.Log;

public class SMSBroadcastReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
private static final String SMS_RECEIVED = "android.provider.Telephony.SMS_RECEIVED";
private static final String TAG = "SMSBroadcastReceiver";
@Override
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
Log.i(TAG, "Intent received: " + intent.getAction());
if (intent.getAction() == SMS_RECEIVED) {
Bundle bundle = intent.getExtras();
if (bundle != null) {
Object[] pdus = (Object[])bundle.get("pdus");
final SmsMessage[] messages = new SmsMessage[pdus.length];
for (int i = 0; i < pdus.length; i++) {
messages[i] = SmsMessage.createFromPdu((byte[])pdus[i]);
} if (messages.length > -1) {
Log.i(TAG, "Message recieved: " + messages[0].getMessageBody());
} } } } }

And the manifest file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="Technicaljar.SMSBroadcastReceiver"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0">
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name" android:debuggable="true" >
<receiver android:name=".SMSBroadcastReceiver">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.provider.telephony.SMS_RECEIVED"></action>
</intent-filter>
</receiver>
</application>
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET">
</uses-permission>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_SMS">
</uses-permission>
</manifest>

I am sending SMS through Telnet, and I cannot see any Intent received messages in the logcat. Here is my logcat from the time of installation.

D/AndroidRuntime( 478):
D/AndroidRuntime( 478): >>>>>>>>>>>>>> AndroidRuntime START <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
D/AndroidRuntime( 478): CheckJNI is ON
D/AndroidRuntime( 478): --- registering native functions ---

D/dalvikvm( 478): Debugger has detached; object registry had 1 entries

D/dalvikvm( 220): GC_EXPLICIT freed 926 objects / 44840 bytes in 73ms

So the SMS seems to be received by the emulator, but looks like the no intents are firing.
What am I doing wrong here? After installing, do I have to somehow 'start' this receiver?
Because when I install, I get

[2010-11-07 21:24:41 - SMSBroadcastReceiver] No Launcher activity found!
[2010-11-07 21:24:41 - SMSBroadcastReceiver] The launch will only sync the application package on the device!

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 :: 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.
