Constants

public static final int FLAG_PERSONAL_INFO

Added in API level 17

Flag for flags, corresponding to personalInfo value of permissionGroupFlags.

Constant Value: 1 (0x00000001)

Fields

public static final Creator<PermissionGroupInfo> CREATOR

Added in API level 1

public int descriptionRes

Added in API level 1

A string resource identifier (in the package's resources) of this permission's description. From the "description" attribute or, if not set, 0.

public int flags

Added in API level 17

Additional flags about this group as given by permissionGroupFlags.

public CharSequence nonLocalizedDescription

Added in API level 1

The description string provided in the AndroidManifest file, if any. You probably don't want to use this, since it will be null if the description is in a resource. You probably want loadDescription(PackageManager) instead.

public int priority

Added in API level 17

Prioritization of this group, for visually sorting with other groups.

Public Constructors

public PermissionGroupInfo ()

Added in API level 1

public PermissionGroupInfo (PermissionGroupInfo orig)

Added in API level 1

Parameters
orig PermissionGroupInfo

Public Methods

public int describeContents ()

Added in API level 1

Describe the kinds of special objects contained in this Parcelable's marshalled representation.

Returns
int a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshalled by the Parcelable.

public CharSequence loadDescription (PackageManager pm)

Added in API level 1

Retrieve the textual description of this permission. This will call back on the given PackageManager to load the description from the application.

Parameters
pm PackageManager: A PackageManager from which the label can be loaded; usually the PackageManager from which you originally retrieved this item.
Returns
CharSequence Returns a CharSequence containing the permission's description. If there is no description, null is returned.

public String toString ()

Added in API level 1

Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:

   getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())

See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.

Returns
String a printable representation of this object.

public void writeToParcel (Parcel dest, int parcelableFlags)

Added in API level 1

Parameters
dest Parcel
parcelableFlags int
