Account Chooser for Android, backported from JellyBean.
Android-AccountChooser is a library that enables you to use the same method as
AccountManager#newChooseAccountIntent (see the official documentation) introduced in API 14, from API Level 8 forward.
Francesco Pontillo and Sebastiano Poggi.
How to use
First, you have to include the given project as a library reference in your application project.
Then, include the following Activities in your
<activity android:name="net.frakbot.accounts.chooser.ChooseTypeAndAccountActivity" /> <activity android:name="net.frakbot.accounts.chooser.ChooseAccountActivity" /> <activity android:name="net.frakbot.accounts.chooser.ChooseAccountTypeActivity" />
In the end call, instead of
AccountChooser.newChooseAccountIntent( selectedAccount, allowableAccounts, allowableAccountTypes, alwaysPromptForAccount, descriptionOverrideText, addAccountAuthTokenType, addAccountRequiredFeatures, addAccountOptions);
AccountChooser will then automatically detect the
Build.VERSION number and use the most appropriate implementation, choosing from:
- the standard device implementation, if
Build.VERSION >= 14
- the backported implementation from the API Level 17
See the official documentation for more help, as the behaviour is just the same.
