android – passing argument to DialogFragment

Posted by: admin March 11, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I need to pass some variables to DialogFragment, so I can perform an action. Eclipse suggests that I should use

Fragment#setArguments(Bundle)

But I don’t know how to use this function. How can I use it to pass variables to my dialog?

How to&Answers:

Using newInstance

public static MyDialogFragment newInstance(int num) {
    MyDialogFragment f = new MyDialogFragment();

    // Supply num input as an argument.
    Bundle args = new Bundle();
    args.putInt("num", num);
    f.setArguments(args);

    return f;
}

And get the Args like this

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    mNum = getArguments().getInt("num");
    ...
}

Answer:

I used to send some values from my listview

How to send

mListview.setOnItemLongClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemLongClickListener() {
        @Override
        public boolean onItemLongClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int position, long id) {
            Favorite clickedObj = (Favorite) parent.getItemAtPosition(position);

            Bundle args = new Bundle();
            args.putString("tar_name", clickedObj.getNameTarife());
            args.putString("fav_name", clickedObj.getName());

            FragmentManager fragmentManager = getSupportFragmentManager();
            TarifeDetayPopup userPopUp = new TarifeDetayPopup();
            userPopUp.setArguments(args);
            userPopUp.show(fragmentManager, "sam");

            return false;
        }
    });

How to receive inside onCreate() method of DialogFragment

    Bundle mArgs = getArguments();
    String nameTrife = mArgs.getString("tar_name");
    String nameFav = mArgs.getString("fav_name");
    String name = "";

// Kotlin upload

 val fm = supportFragmentManager
        val dialogFragment = AddProgFargmentDialog() // my custom FargmentDialog
        var args: Bundle? = null
        args?.putString("title", model.title);
        dialogFragment.setArguments(args)
        dialogFragment.show(fm, "Sample Fragment")

// receive

 override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        if (getArguments() != null) {
            val mArgs = arguments
            var myDay= mArgs.getString("title")
        }
    }

Answer:

as a general way of working with Fragments, as JafarKhQ noted, you should not pass the params in the constructor but with a Bundle.

the built-in method for that in the Fragment class is setArguments(Bundle) and getArguments().

basically, what you do is set up a bundle with all your Parcelable items and send them on.
in turn, your Fragment will get those items in it’s onCreate and do it’s magic to them.

the way shown in the DialogFragment link was one way of doing this in a multi appearing fragment with one specific type of data and works fine most of the time, but you can also do this manually.

Answer:

So there is two ways to pass values from fragment/activity to dialog fragment:-

  1. Create dialog fragment object with make setter method and pass value/argument.

  2. Pass value/argument through bundle.

Method 1:

// Fragment or Activity 
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
     DialogFragmentWithSetter dialog = new DialogFragmentWithSetter();
     dialog.setValue(header, body);
     dialog.show(getSupportFragmentManager(), "DialogFragmentWithSetter");         
}


//  your dialog fragment
public class MyDialogFragment extends DialogFragment {
    String header; 
    String body;
    public void setValue(String header, String body) {   
          this.header = header;
          this.body = body;
    }
    // use above variable into your dialog fragment
}

Note:- This is not best way to do

Method 2:

// Fragment or Activity 
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
     DialogFragmentWithSetter dialog = new DialogFragmentWithSetter();

     Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
     bundle.putString("header", "Header");
     bundle.putString("body", "Body");  
     dialog.setArguments(bundle);
     dialog.show(getSupportFragmentManager(), "DialogFragmentWithSetter");         
}


//  your dialog fragment
public class MyDialogFragment extends DialogFragment {
    String header; 
    String body;

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        if (getArguments() != null) {
             header = getArguments().getString("header","");
             body = getArguments().getString("body","");
        }
    }
    // use above variable into your dialog fragment
}

Note:- This is the best way to do.

Answer:

In my case, none of the code above with bundle-operate works; Here is my decision (I don’t know if it is proper code or not, but it works in my case):

public class DialogMessageType extends DialogFragment {
    private static String bodyText;

    public static DialogMessageType addSomeString(String temp){
        DialogMessageType f = new DialogMessageType();
        bodyText = temp;
        return f;
    };

    @Override
    public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        final String[] choiseArray = {"sms", "email"};
        String title = "Send text via:";
        final AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(getActivity());
        builder.setTitle(title).setItems(choiseArray, itemClickListener);
        builder.setCancelable(true);
        return builder.create();
    }

    DialogInterface.OnClickListener itemClickListener = new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        @Override
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
            switch (which){
                case 0:
                    prepareToSendCoordsViaSMS(bodyText);
                    dialog.dismiss();
                    break;
                case 1:
                    prepareToSendCoordsViaEmail(bodyText);
                    dialog.dismiss();
                    break;
                default:
                    break;
            }
        }
    };
[...]
}

public class SendObjectActivity extends FragmentActivity {
[...]

DialogMessageType dialogMessageType = DialogMessageType.addSomeString(stringToSend);
dialogMessageType.show(getSupportFragmentManager(),"dialogMessageType");

[...]
}

Answer:

Just that i want to show how to do what do said @JafarKhQ in Kotlin for those who use kotlin that might help them and save theme time too:

so you have to create a companion objet to create new newInstance function

you can set the paremter of the function whatever you want.
using

 val args = Bundle()

you can set your args.

You can now use args.putSomthing to add you args which u give as a prameter in your newInstance function.
putString(key:String,str:String) to add string for example and so on

Now to get the argument you can use
arguments.getSomthing(Key:String)=> like arguments.getString("1")

here is a full example

class IntervModifFragment : DialogFragment(), ModContract.View
{
    companion object {
        fun newInstance(  plom:String,type:String,position: Int):IntervModifFragment {
            val fragment =IntervModifFragment()
            val args = Bundle()
            args.putString( "1",plom)
            args.putString("2",type)
            args.putInt("3",position)
            fragment.arguments = args
            return fragment
        }
    }

...
    override fun onViewCreated(view: View?, savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onViewCreated(view, savedInstanceState)
        fillSpinerPlom(view,arguments.getString("1"))
         fillSpinerType(view, arguments.getString("2"))
        confirmer_virme.setOnClickListener({on_confirmClick( arguments.getInt("3"))})


        val dateSetListener = object : DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener {
            override fun onDateSet(view: DatePicker, year: Int, monthOfYear: Int,
                                   dayOfMonth: Int) {
                val datep= DateT(year,monthOfYear,dayOfMonth)
                updateDateInView(datep.date)
            }
        }

    }
  ...
}

Now how to create your dialog you can do somthing like this in another class

  val dialog = IntervModifFragment.newInstance(ListInter.list[position].plom,ListInter.list[position].type,position)

like this for example

class InterListAdapter(private val context: Context, linkedList: LinkedList<InterItem> ) : RecyclerView.Adapter<InterListAdapter.ViewHolder>()
{
   ... 
    override fun onBindViewHolder(holder: ViewHolder, position: Int) {

        ...
        holder.btn_update!!.setOnClickListener {
           val dialog = IntervModifFragment.newInstance(ListInter.list[position].plom,ListInter.list[position].type,position)
           val ft = (context as AppCompatActivity).supportFragmentManager.beginTransaction()
            dialog.show(ft, ContentValues.TAG)
        }
        ...
    }
..

}
