passing argument to DialogFragment

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?

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");
    ...
}

See the full example here

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.

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;
        }
    });

and 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 = "";

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");

[...]
}
