BroadcastReceiver Tutorial Part 3 – CUSTOM BROADCASTS – Android Studio Tutorial
In part 3 of the BroadcastReceiver tutorial, we will send and receive an implicit custom broadcast with an intent action string that we define ourselves. The same as system broadcast our custom broadcast can contain extra data, which we add by calling putExtra on the intent and passing a value together with a name. We then pass our intent to the sendBroadcast method, which will send the broadcast immediately and trigger all BroadcastReceivers that were registered dynamically with the registerReceiver method.
To access the variables in our Activity, we can add the BroadcastReceiver as an inner class and update the UI in it’s onReceive method directly.
