android – How to set ringtone with RingtoneManager.ACTION_RINGTONE_PICKER?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I try to find solution here, but there are only solution for own/selected file, not for code when I call picker. I use following code when user press button:

Intent intent = new Intent(RingtoneManager.ACTION_RINGTONE_PICKER);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_TITLE, "Select ringtone for notifications:");
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_SHOW_SILENT, false);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_SHOW_DEFAULT, true);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_TYPE,RingtoneManager.TYPE_NOTIFICATION);
ActivityCurrent.this.startActivityForResult(intent,999);

This show ringtone picker, user can choose what ringtone wants, but I miss two things:
– it doesn´t show current ringtone when it open
– it not save ringtone when it is clicked on OK


I still can´t find way how to open RINGTONE_PICKER with already selected current ring tone. Any idea?

Intent intent = new Intent(RingtoneManager.ACTION_RINGTONE_PICKER);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_TITLE, "Select ringtone for notifications:");
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_SHOW_SILENT, false);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_SHOW_DEFAULT, true);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_TYPE,RingtoneManager.TYPE_NOTIFICATION);
ActivityCurrent.this.startActivityForResult(intent,999);
How to solve:

You must implement onActivityResult() to receive result from user’s pick, then save it.

if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
    Uri uri = intent.getParcelableExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_PICKED_URI);
    if (uri != null) {
    String ringTonePath = uri.toString();
}

Here an example: http://www.ceveni.com/2009/07/ringtone-picker-in-android-with-intent.html

EDIT: update

RingtoneManager.setActualDefaultRingtoneUri(
    myActivity,
    RingtoneManager.TYPE_RINGTONE,
    uri);

You must call this 🙂

###

Intent intent=new Intent(RingtoneManager.ACTION_RINGTONE_PICKER);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_EXISTING_URI, ringtone);
intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_DEFAULT_URI, ringtone);
startActivityForResult(intent , 1);

“ringtone” is the uri in which I am saving the picked tone in onActivityResult().

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
        switch (requestCode) {
        case 1:
            ringtone = data.getParcelableExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_PICKED_URI);

            // Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(),RingtoneManager.URI_COLUMN_INDEX,
            // Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            break;

        default:
            break;
        }
    }
}

Hope it helps you. Hit answered if it does.

The code is perfect and works for me. But you forgot to mention the permissions required..here it is. try this code..hope it helps

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS" ></uses-permission>
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_CONFIGURATION" ></uses-permission>
  <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS" ></uses-permission>

This code will show default ringtone which the user sets earlier when ringtone picker is used.

Use below code in the button for ringtone intent.

public void pickRingtone(View view) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method.   stub

        Intent intent = new.       Intent(RingtoneManager.ACTION_RINGTONE_PICKER);
        intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_TYPE,
                RingtoneManager.TYPE_RINGTONE);
        intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_TITLE, "Select Ringtone");

    // for existing ringtone
        Uri urie =     RingtoneManager.getActualDefaultRingtoneUri(
                getApplicationContext(), RingtoneManager.TYPE_RINGTONE);
        intent.putExtra(RingtoneManager.EXTRA_RINGTONE_EXISTING_URI, urie);

    startActivityForResult(intent, 5);
}
