AndroidMobile DevelopmentApps/Applications

This example demonstrates about How to get city information from Network provider in android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:gravity="center"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/text"
      android:textSize="30sp"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken a text view to show city information.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.myapplication;

import android.Manifest;
import android.content.pm.PackageManager;
import android.location.Address;
import android.location.Geocoder;
import android.location.Location;
import android.location.LocationManager;
import android.os.Build;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.support.v4.app.ActivityCompat;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.widget.TextView;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.List;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   TextView textView;
   Location location;
   double describeContents;
   List<Address> addresses;
   Geocoder geocoder;

   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.P)
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      textView = findViewById(R.id.text);
      LocationManager locationManager = (LocationManager) this.getSystemService(LOCATION_SERVICE);
      if (ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED && ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
         ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(this, new String[]{Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION}, 101);
      }
      location = locationManager
      .getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER);
      geocoder= new Geocoder(this);
   }

   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.O)
   @Override
   public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, String[] permissions, int[] grantResults) {
   switch (requestCode) {
      case 101:
         if (grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
            if (ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED && ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
               return;
            }
            try {
               addresses = geocoder.getFromLocation(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude(), 10);
               Address address = addresses.get(0);
               textView.setText("" + address.getLocality());
            } catch (IOException e) {
               e.printStackTrace();
            }
         } else {
            //not granted
         }
         break;
         default:
            super.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults);
      }
   }

   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.O)
   @Override
   protected void onResume() {
      super.onResume();
      if (ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED && ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(this, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
         return;
      }
      try {
         addresses = geocoder.getFromLocation(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude(), 10);
         Address address = addresses.get(0);
         textView.setText("" + address.getLocality());
      } catch (IOException e) {
         e.printStackTrace();
      }
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.example.myapplication">

   <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
   <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
   <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />

   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from the android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click the Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen −
