 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. filtering dialog items in onPrepareDialog()

My application has a ListView displaying some items that are
associated with different documents:

// arrays.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <string-array name="select_doc_dialog_items">
        <item>doc type A</item>
        <item>doc type B</item>
        <item>doc type C</item>
        <item>doc type D</item>

The ListView implements an OnItemLongClickListener and displays the
available document types as follows:

        public boolean onItemLongClick(AdapterView<?> av, View v, int
position, long id) {
            mPositionActive = position;
            mListView.invalidate();  // TODO: increase efficiency by reducing
invalidate to one item

            if ((position%10) < 4) {
                Toast.makeText(this, "long click position " + position " has
                Toast.makeText(this, "long click position " + position + " has
no docs",

            return true;

    protected Dialog onCreateDialog(int id) {
        switch (id) {
            return new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
                .setItems(R.array.select_doc_dialog_items, new
DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int
which) {

                        /* User clicked so do some stuff */
                        String[] items = getResources().getStringArray
                        Toast.makeText(List15.this, "You selected: " + which
+ " , " + items[which],
        return null;

    protected void onPrepareDialog(int id, Dialog dialog) {
        super.onPrepareDialog(id, dialog);
        Toast.makeText(List15.this, "onPrepareDialog id: " + id,

- - -

I would like to modify onPrepareDialog to filter the dialog to display
only the document types relevant for the long clicked item (like a
context menu except that some long clicks will perform a different
task: expand or collapse the hierarchy displayed in the custom
ListView).  For example, if an item is long clicked that is associated
with only document types A and B, I would like the dialog to avoid
displaying document types C and D as dialog items?   However, looking
at, it is not clear to me what the id of an individual item in
the select_doc_dialog_items array would be.

Anyone have any tips on how to use onPrepareDialog() to filter
displayed dialog items?

Thanks and best regards,


2. I don't receive broadcasts


I have started developing a tool, which should react on an outgoing call or 
sms and also to be started at boot time. The start at boot time does work 
properply, but I'm not able to receive the broadcasts for the outgoing calls.

Who can tell me, what is wrong with my code??

For this, I added two receivers in my manifest and implemented the broadcast-
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
        <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        <action android:name="android.provider.Telephony.SMS_RECEIVED" />
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.PHONE_STATE" />
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" />
public class TelephoneViewer extends BroadcastReceiver {

public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
        Log.d(this.getClass().getSimpleName(), "Telephoneviewer.onReceive()");

Thank you very much for your support!

Best regards,
