problem with Notification (PendingIntent)

Postby sgom » Thu Oct 30, 2008 7:03 pm

Hello guys!

I have a problem with notifications (SDK 1.0)

I have wrote an application that, when an event occurs, prepare a notification and puts it on the status bar.
Each of these notifications should start different instances of the same Activity (a simple activity that shows some information).
The activity receives with the data to show also the integer value to use to dismiss the notification that started it.
Let's call this Activity "show".

Here is the problem: let's say i prepare a notification that should launch my activity "show" with data "first" and put it on the status bar.

Now I prepare a second notification that should launch "show" with data "second" and put it on the status bar.

The two notifications have different values to be dismissed.

I would like that now, opening the menu containing notifications, if I click the first notification "show" is launched and shows to the user "first", then the notification is dismissed. If I click on the second notification "show" should be launched, display "second", and also this notification should be dismissed.

Instead what I get is that, independently of which of the two notifications I click, "show" il launched and displays "first", after that it dismiss the notification I clicked. If now I click the remaining notification "show is launched, displays again "first" and does't dismiss the notification (I must click clear notifications)

I think the problem is to prepare the PendingIntent with some flag, but I don't know which.
I build the PendingIntent in this way:

PendingIntent myPendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, int, myIntent, Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_MULTIPLE_TASK);

where context is the context ( :P )
int is 4 (a random value)
myIntent is the Intent to be used to launch the Activity (it has the FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK)

should I use some other flags?

For different notifications, you should add the notification id to the intent, so you can getExtras().getInt("notifId") and dismiss that one.

On the other problem: you do not load the correct data I guess.
