This example demonstrate about How to manage startActivityForResult on 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"
   android:orientation = "vertical">
   <TextView
      android:id = "@+id/actionEvent"
      android:textSize = "40sp"
      android:layout_marginTop = "30dp"
      android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_height = "match_parent" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken text view to show on Activity result data.

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

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Build;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.RequiresApi;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   TextView actionEvent;
   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP)
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      actionEvent = findViewById(R.id.actionEvent);
      actionEvent.setText("Click");
      actionEvent.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            Intent i = new Intent(MainActivity.this, SecondActivity.class);
            startActivityForResult(i, 1);
         }
      });
   }
   @Override
   protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
      super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
      if (requestCode == 1) {
         if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
            String returnString = data.getStringExtra("result");
            actionEvent.setText(returnString);
         }
      }
   }
}

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

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;

public class SecondActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_second);
      Intent returnIntent = new Intent();
      returnIntent.putExtra("result","data from seconActivity");
      setResult(Activity.RESULT_OK,returnIntent);
      finish();
   }
}

Step 3 − Add the following code activity_second.xml

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout 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:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".SecondActivity">
</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   package = "com.example.myapplication">
   <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 = ".SecondActivity">
      </activity>
      <activity android:name = ".MainActivity" android:configChanges = "keyboardHidden|orientation|screenSize">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name = "android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <action android:name = "android.net.conn.CONNECTIVITY_CHANGE" />
            <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 android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –

Now click on textview, it will take the data from second activity and gives the result as shown below –
