AndroidMobile DevelopmentApps/Applications

In some situations, we need to recall activity again from onCreate(). This example demonstrates how to reload activity 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"
   android:id = "@+id/parent"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity"
   android:gravity = "center"
   android:orientation = "vertical">
   <TextView
      android:id = "@+id/text"
      android:textSize = "28sp"
      android:textAlignment = "center"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, We have taken text view, when a user clicks on text view, it will call Main Activity again.

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

package com.example.andy.myapplication;
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 {
   int view = R.layout.activity_main;
   TextView textview;
   @RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.JELLY_BEAN)
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(view);
      textview = findViewById(R.id.text);
      textview.setText("Click here to recall activity");
      textview.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            Intent i = new Intent(MainActivity.this, MainActivity.class);
            finish();
            overridePendingTransition(0, 0);
            startActivity(i);
            overridePendingTransition(0, 0);
         }
      });
   }
}

In the above code, we have used Intent to recreate an activity as shown below -

Intent i = new Intent(MainActivity.this, MainActivity.class);
finish();
overridePendingTransition(0, 0);
startActivity(i);
overridePendingTransition(0, 0);

In the above code, we have used overridePendingTransition(), it is used to remove activity create animation while re-creating activity.

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 −

In the above result, it has shown default screen when you click on text view, it will re-create Main Activity from onCreate() as shown below -
