android – Toast message from Broadcast Receiver-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have a broadcast receiver and I am trying to show a toast message from it, is this possible ?
This code doesn’t show the toast but it print the log message in the logcat. Is there some idiotic thing I am doing or what is my problem ?

public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
    Log.v("log", "this is shown");
    Toast.makeText(context, "this is not shown"     , Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
How to solve:

Call the show() method for the Toast.


you forgot to call show() on the Toast..
although i would not recommend creating toasts from BroadcastReceivers.. you might consider using Notifications


Use this

Toast.makeText(context, "this is not shown",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
