 Hi, i like to create multiple alarms, but i does not work. how to set
and how to request in my receiver what alarm intent came activated

in my i call this function like: setalarm(5); setalarm(10)
(it works but only remember the last)

 public void setalarm(int delay)
         Intent intent = new Intent(alarm.this, alarmreceiver.class);
         PendingIntent sender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(alarm.this,
0, intent, 0);
         intent.setData((Uri.parse("custom://"+delay)));  << i heared
about this would make individual alarms.. but does not work

         Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
         calendar.add(Calendar.SECOND, delay);

         intent.putExtra("avr", ""+delay);   //i tried to set my data
here to read later, but also does not work

         AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager)getSystemService
         am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, calendar.getTimeInMillis(),

         //Toast.makeText(this, "Alarm set", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show


---- my

public class alarmreceiver extends BroadcastReceiver
        NotificationManager mNM;
 public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
                Uri ursistr = intent.getData();
                String intentstr = intent.getStringExtra("avr");  //does not 
get the
saved intentextra?!

        Toast.makeText(context, "GOT IT :"+intentstr+" "+ursistr,

 Hi,Try using

am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, System.currentTimeMillis()+(delay * 1000)
, sender);

This will set the alarms according to the delay that you specify.

 ight, this is because PendingIntents only keep track of one set of
extras for a given action+data+category+component combination. That
is to say, it ignores extras when comparing PendingIntents.

Because your second PendingIntent matches the first one, the system
recycles the first one.

Depending on the desired behavior, you could use FLAG_CANCEL_CURRENT
to wipe the old PendingIntent and replace it with a new one containing
the updated extras. Or, if you need multiple events, you could use
the data Uri to hold the extra information. (So something like
"custom://avr/myvalue" might work.)

1. Retrieve "My contact card" data

Hello, this is my first post in this group.

I have an HTC Legend running 2.1 and in the contacts list at the
top there is 'My Contact Card'. When I use a cursor query to read the
rest of my contacts this one doesn't show up. I'd like to be able to
use the data from my contact card within my app but can't find
documentation anywhere on how to do it.

Can anybody shed some light, please?

PD: I'm now using text from another post (my English is not very good)


2. Dynamically obtaining several instance of a view item defined in layout/xml file

I have a relative layout (let's say innerRL place in layout
inner_view.xml) which I wanna add to another layout (main_layout), I
wanna dynamically add multiple instances of innerRL. Specifying
innerRL in xml gives me ease of maintenance (as against doing totally
in the code), however I want to be able to add several instances
dynamically. Using findViewById(resource_id) gives me that particular
instance, should I have to use clone()?

One other approach I see is ArrayAdapter, but it seems overkill.
