This example demonstrate about How to send data to previous 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"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   android:layout_margin = "16dp"
   android:orientation = "vertical"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity">
   <TextView
      android:id = "@+id/text_view"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_centerInParent = "true"
      android:layout_gravity = "center" />
   <Button
      android:id = "@+id/button"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_alignParentBottom = "true"
      android:layout_gravity = "center"
      android:layout_marginTop = "16dp"
      android:text = "Get Data" />
</RelativeLayout>

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

package com.example.myapplication;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.content.SharedPreferences;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.Nullable;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   private final static int MY_REQUEST_CODE = 1;
   TextView textView;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      textView = findViewById(R.id.text_view);
      Button button = findViewById(R.id.button);
      button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, SecondActivity.class);
            startActivityForResult(intent, MY_REQUEST_CODE);
         }
      });
   }
   @Override
   protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, @Nullable Intent data) {
      super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
      if (resultCode = = Activity.RESULT_OK) {
         if (requestCode = = MY_REQUEST_CODE) {
            if (data ! = null)
            textView.setText(data.getStringExtra("value"));
         }
      }
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_second.xml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   android:layout_margin = "16dp"
   android:orientation = "vertical"
   tools:context = ".SecondActivity">
   <EditText
      android:id = "@+id/edit_text"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_centerInParent = "true"
      android:layout_gravity = "center"
      android:hint = "Enter something to return previous activity"
      android:inputType = "text" />
   <Button
      android:id = "@+id/button"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_alignParentBottom = "true"
      android:layout_gravity = "center"
      android:layout_marginTop = "16dp"
      android:text = "Done" />
</RelativeLayout>

Step 5 − Add the following code to src/SecondActivity.java

package com.example.myapplication;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.content.SharedPreferences;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class SecondActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_second);
      final EditText editText = findViewById(R.id.edit_text);
      Button button = findViewById(R.id.button);
      button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            String value = editText.getText().toString().trim();
            Intent intent = new Intent();
            intent.putExtra("value", value);
            setResult(RESULT_OK, intent);
            finish();
         }
      });
   }
}

Step 6 − 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">
   <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>
      <activity android:name = ".SecondActivity"></activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer.
