Service restart after preferences change

Postby AjayExpresso » Sat Oct 02, 2010 5:04 pm


I have a Service and a PreferenceActivity that allows the user to edit some preferences. I would like to restart the Service once the user is done with the PreferenceActivity.

I understand that I can register onChange listeners for individual preference changes, but I do not want to restart the Service as *each* preference changes. I would like to do this when the user is done editing all the preferences. Short of having a "Apply Now" button in the PreferenceActivity, I do not see a straightforward way of doing this.

Am I missing something fundamental here?

Have you looked at the preference manager listeners?

How about OnActivityStopListener
