Announcement

Android-AccountChooser


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.

Authors

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 AndroidManifest.xml:

 <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 AccountManager#newChooseAccountIntent:

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.
