Notification.Builder add action

I'm trying to know which button is pressed so I do this on onReceive

Log.e(TAG, "Clicked " + extras.getInt("ACTION"));

and I always, no matter which button I press, get 3
which is the

another issue is that the notification is not closed unless I press on the notification buddy, but it's not closed when I press the button.

public void createNotification(Context context, Reminder reminder) {
// Build notification
Notification noti = new Notification.Builder(context)
.setContentText("Pick Action")
getPendingAction(context, reminder,
.addAction(R.drawable.icon, "Take",
getPendingAction(context, reminder, ActionEnum.TAKE))
.addAction(R.drawable.icon, "Snooze",
getPendingAction(context, reminder, ActionEnum.SNOOZE))
.addAction(R.drawable.icon, "Remove",
getPendingAction(context, reminder, ActionEnum.REMOVE))

NotificationManager notificationManager = (NotificationManager) context
// hide the notification after its selected
noti.flags |= Notification.FLAG_AUTO_CANCEL;

notificationManager.notify(0, noti);


public PendingIntent getPendingAction(Context context, Reminder reminder,
ActionEnum action) {
// Prepare intent which is triggered if the
// notification is selected
Intent intent = new Intent(context, RemindersReceiver.class);
intent.putExtra("ID", reminder.getIntId());
intent.putExtra("CLICK", true);
intent.putExtra("ACTION", action.getValue());
Log.e(TAG, "set action : " + action.getValue());

return PendingIntent.getBroadcast(context, 0, intent, 0);


Your code in getPendingAction() will always return the same PendingIntent. You are not creating a separate PendingIntent each time you call this method. To ensure that each call creates a separate PendingIntent, you need to make the Intent unique. You can do this by setting the ACTION in the Intent, like this:


To ensure that any old PendingIntents with the same ACTION are overwritten by the latest extras, I would also call getBroadcast() like this:

return PendingIntent.getBroadcast(context, 0, intent,
