How to exclude the application itself from Android share (ShareActionProvider)

I made a share function in a App called

GovDic
. But in the share list, the application itself appeared. How to exclude it from the share?

I need share
text/plain
content to other App, also other App can share
text/plain
content to this App.

manifest:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.comp548.govdic">

...

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:supportsRtl="true"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme">

...

<activity android:name=".OrgDetailActivity">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.SEND" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<data android:mimeType="text/plain" />
</intent-filter>

<meta-data android:name="android.support.PARENT_ACTIVITY"
android:value=".MainActivity"/>
</activity>
</application>

</manifest>


menu:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto">

<item android:id="@+id/menu_item_share"
app:showAsAction="ifRoom"
android:title="@string/share"
app:actionProviderClass="android.support.v7.widget.ShareActionProvider" />
</menu>


activity:

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
// Inflate menu resource file.
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.detail_menu, menu);

// Locate MenuItem with ShareActionProvider
MenuItem menuItem = menu.findItem(R.id.menu_item_share);

// Fetch and store ShareActionProvider
ShareActionProvider shareActionProvider = (ShareActionProvider) MenuItemCompat.getActionProvider(menuItem);

Intent shareIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
shareIntent.setType(Constant.MIME_TYPE_TEXT_PLAIN);
shareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, etDescription.getText().toString());

shareActionProvider.setShareIntent(shareIntent);

// Return true to display menu
return true;
}

Answer

these functions can help you achieve you want. just pass your package name

public static void shareExludingApp(Context ctx, String packageNameToExclude, android.net.Uri imagePath, String text) {

        List<Intent> targetedShareIntents = new ArrayList<Intent>();
        Intent share = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND);
        share.setType("image/*");
        File file = new File(imagePath.getPath());
        List<ResolveInfo> resInfo = ctx.getPackageManager().queryIntentActivities(createShareIntent(text, file), 0);
        if (!resInfo.isEmpty()) {
            for (ResolveInfo info : resInfo) {
                Intent targetedShare = createShareIntent(text, file);

                if (!info.activityInfo.packageName.equalsIgnoreCase(packageNameToExclude)) {
                    targetedShare.setPackage(info.activityInfo.packageName);
                    targetedShareIntents.add(targetedShare);
                }
            }

            Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(targetedShareIntents.remove(0),
                    "Select app to share");
            chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS,
                    targetedShareIntents.toArray(new Parcelable[]{}));
            ctx.startActivity(chooserIntent);
        }

    }

    private static Intent createShareIntent(String text, File file) {
        Intent share = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND);
        share.setType("image/*");
        if (text != null) {
            share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, text);
        }
        share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, Uri.fromFile(file));
        return share;
    }
