 Hi all,

  I am receiving Text messages from another application sent through
broadcast intent. I am displaying these messages to my application's
GUI.

  In my application I had defined <broadcast receiver> in my
manifest.xml

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<receiver android:name=".HHBroadcastReceiver">
                        <intent-filter>
                        <action android:name="android.demo.test"/>
                        </intent-filter>
                </receiver>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
and also define the logic in the Broadcast receiver class

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
public class HHBroadcastReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
@Override
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
//TODO: React to the Intent received.
        String msg_receive = intent.getStringExtra("message1");
        AssetTest.hh_text.append("\n\n"+msg_receive);
}
}
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

but I am getting following error,

09-04 10:49:04.275: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(912):

Null pointer exception while receiving at Broadcast receiver

by Randy McEoin » Sun, 06 Sep 2009 17:36:18 GMT


 t would be best to check for null before attempting to use.  Perhaps
whatever is issuing the broadcast is not adding the string extra.

String msg_receive = intent.getStringExtra("message1");
if (msg_receive != null) {
AssetTest.hh_text.append("\n\n"+msg_receive);
}

1. Battery Log using service

Hi,
    I have created a activity to show battery information when
started, but I would preferably want to keep it constantly running in
the background as a service and make a log of when the charging
started, when it ended, how long the battery charge lasted etc etc.
If I keep it in activity, user must run this app when charging is
started, which isn't make it much useful. I am not sure how do I set
my app to trigger automatically when charging is started, disconnected
etc.
Btw, I have created a broadcastreceiver for catching
Intent.ACTION_BATTERY_CHANGED and its working fine, but only from the
activity.

Pls suggest what change should I be doing to my app, so that whenever
there is a charging / discharging change thru charger plugin / usb
plugin, my app shld log it in file.

Thanks
Omkar
