I need to know a generic way to distinguish between a call of activity from launcher and a call from another activity from inside my app, or a BACK on the activity stack
Anyone? this is bugging me for quite a while now and i need to put it to rest...
Thanks in advance
In the onCreate of you Activity, call getIntent(). If the Activity is started from the launcher (home screen) the values for getAction() will be android.intent.action.MAIN and the getCategories() will return a set which will contain the android.intent.category.LAUNCHER category. If the activity is started from elsewhere these values may be null.
