AliasActivity

public class AliasActivity
extends Activity

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.content.Context

       ↳ android.view.ContextThemeWrapper
         ↳ android.app.Activity
           ↳ android.app.AliasActivity


Stub activity that launches another activity (and then finishes itself) based on information in its component's manifest meta-data. This is a simple way to implement an alias-like mechanism. To use this activity, you should include in the manifest for the associated component an entry named "android.app.alias". It is a reference to an XML resource describing an intent that launches the real application.

Protected methods

onCreate

added in API level 1
protected void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState)

Called when the activity is starting. This is where most initialization should go: calling setContentView(int) to inflate the activity's UI, using findViewById(int) to programmatically interact with widgets in the UI, calling managedQuery(android.net.Uri, String[], String, String[], String) to retrieve cursors for data being displayed, etc.

You can call finish() from within this function, in which case onDestroy() will be immediately called after onCreate(Bundle) without any of the rest of the activity lifecycle (onStart(), onResume(), onPause(), etc) executing.

Derived classes must call through to the super class's implementation of this method. If they do not, an exception will be thrown.

Parameters
savedInstanceState Bundle: If the activity is being re-initialized after previously being shut down then this Bundle contains the data it most recently supplied in Activity.onSaveInstanceState(Bundle). Note: Otherwise it is null.
