How to call activity from a library module in android studio

Tags: , , , ,



I am trying to call an activity from a library module in my application. I keep getting the error

android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit activity class {com.nextgis.mobile/com.nextgis.mobile.activity.MainActivity}; have you declared this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml?

I am calling the activity as

Intent intentGIS = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
intentGIS.setComponent(new ComponentName("com.nextgis.mobile",
                    "com.nextgis.mobile.activity.MainActivity"));
startActivity(intentGIS);

I have added compile project(':gisapp') in the gradle file for the module app. I know gradle does manifest merging automatically but I could be wrong.

What am I doing wrong here ?

Note : This is the project which I am using as library.

Answer

We can use reflection to get class object.

Class.forName(“com.mypackage.myMainActivity”)

Add this code in Library project to call,

try {
      Intent myIntent = new Intent(this,Class.forName("com.mypackage.myMainActivity"));
      startActivity(myIntent );
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
     e.printStackTrace();
}

“com.mypackage.myMainActivity” is the Activity present in Main project, that we need to call from its Library project.
