Depending on what you need from intents an external may not be necessary: see the mobileGetLaunchData function and launchDataChanged message in the Dictionary.

I was glad to see those included in the language but they are only for incoming messages. The OP wants to put up the standard share panel for outgoing data and we don't have anything for that yet. I'd love to see that added too.

Thanks, Jacque. Yes, in my haste I'd conceptualized what he wants to do exactly backwards.

With LC's ability to send email, text messages, and use URL schemes, it hadn't occurred to me before that there may be other means of sharing we'd need, but now that I think about it it's obvious.

I would suggest filing a request for this in the LQCC:
http://quality.livecode.com/

Given how much work has already been done with data structures for handling incoming intents, my hope is that could be leveraged to handle outgoing with minimal expense.

Thank Jacques and FourthWorld for your answers

I found this letter from by Heather Laine on September 6, 2013 in the livecode site blog section.

"livecode . com/android-surprise-package/"

This shows the use of android intent and I thought it could be included as an external.


PD. Sorry by my english write


best regards

Hi LiveCode COmunnity


Anyone know any way to add features in a apk file created with LiveCode .

I mean , decompile the apk to add a function like "Intent.ACTION_SEND" .
