Android Alert Dialog

In this tutorial, we show you how to display an alert box in Android. See flowing Steps :
  1. First, use the AlertDialog.Builder to create the alert box interface, like title, message to display, buttons, and button onclick function
  2. Later attach above builder to AlertDialog and display it.
  3. Done.

1 Android Layout Files

Simpel layout file, display a button on screen.
File : res/layout/main.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical" >
 
    <Button
        android:id="@+id/buttonAlert"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Show Alert Box" />
 
</LinearLayout>

2. Activity

When user click on this button, display the alert box, with your pre-defined alert dialog interface.
File : MainActivity.java
package com.bishnu.android;
 
import android.app.Activity;
import android.app.AlertDialog;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.widget.Button;
 
public class MainActivity extends Activity {
 
 final Context context = this;
 private Button button;
 
 public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
 
  super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
  setContentView(R.layout.main);
 
  button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.buttonAlert);
 
  // add button listener
  button.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
 
  @Override
  public void onClick(View arg0) {
 
   AlertDialog.Builder alertDialogBuilder = new AlertDialog.Builder(
    context);
 
   // set title
   alertDialogBuilder.setTitle("Your Title");
 
   // set dialog message
   alertDialogBuilder
    .setMessage("Click yes to exit!")
    .setCancelable(false)
    .setPositiveButton("Yes",new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
     public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog,int id) {
      // if this button is clicked, close
      // current activity
      MainActivity.this.finish();
     }
      })
    .setNegativeButton("No",new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
     public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog,int id) {
      // if this button is clicked, just close
      // the dialog box and do nothing
      dialog.cancel();
     }
    });
 
    // create alert dialog
    AlertDialog alertDialog = alertDialogBuilder.create();
 
    // show it
    alertDialog.show();
   }
  });
 }
}
