Android Question

how I can get the city name of my current position?

I'm working with android studio and in a popup dialog I want that users can get their position but all I know to do is get my latitude and longitude.

This is the code

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Context;
import android.location.Criteria;
import android.location.Location;
import android.location.LocationListener;
import android.location.LocationManager;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements LocationListener {
private TextView latituteField;
private TextView longitudeField;
private LocationManager locationManager;
private String provider;


@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
latituteField = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.TextView02);
longitudeField = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.TextView04);


locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);

Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, false);
Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);


if (location != null) {
System.out.println("Provider " + provider + " has been selected.");
onLocationChanged(location);
} else {
latituteField.setText("Location not available");
longitudeField.setText("Location not available");
}
}


@Override
protected void onResume() {
super.onResume();
locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 400, 1, this);
}


@Override
protected void onPause() {
super.onPause();
locationManager.removeUpdates(this);
}

@Override
public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
int lat = (int) (location.getLatitude());
int lng = (int) (location.getLongitude());
latituteField.setText(String.valueOf(lat));
longitudeField.setText(String.valueOf(lng));
}

@Override
public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {


}

@Override
public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Enabled new provider " + provider,
Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

}

@Override
public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Disabled provider " + provider,
Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
}
}


in the MainActivity.Can you help me?

I've added this in the manifest

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_MOCK_LOCATION"/>


but it still says "Location not available".



Answer

You need the GeoCoder class to get Address from a given Lat/Long. try the following:

GeoCoder geoCoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());
StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
try {
    List<Address> address = geoCoder.getFromLocation(latitude, longitude, 1);
    int maxLines = address.get(0).getMaxAddressLineIndex();
    for (int i=0; i<maxLines; i++) {
    String addressStr = address.get(0).getAddressLine(i);
    builder.append(addressStr);
    builder.append(" ");
    }

String fnialAddress = builder.toString(); //This is the complete address.
} catch (IOException e) {}
  catch (NullPointerException e) {}

Code below should work for you: (Check the inline comments regarding your code)

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Locale;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Context;
import android.location.Address;
import android.location.Criteria;
import android.location.Geocoder;
import android.location.Location;
import android.location.LocationListener;
import android.location.LocationManager;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements LocationListener {
private TextView latituteField;
private TextView longitudeField;
private TextView addressField; //Add a new TextView to your activity_main to display the address
private LocationManager locationManager;
private String provider;


@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    latituteField = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.TextView02);
    longitudeField = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.TextView04);
    addressField = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.TextView05); //Make sure you add this to activity_main


    locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);

    Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
    provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, false);
    Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);


    if (location != null) {
        System.out.println("Provider " + provider + " has been selected.");
        onLocationChanged(location);
    } else {
        latituteField.setText("Location not available");
        longitudeField.setText("Location not available");
    }
}


@Override
protected void onResume() {
    super.onResume();
    locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 400, 1, this);
}


@Override
protected void onPause() {
    super.onPause();
    locationManager.removeUpdates(this);
}

@Override
public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
    //You had this as int. It is advised to have Lat/Loing as double.
    double lat = location.getLatitude();
    double lng = location.getLongitude();

    Geocoder geoCoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());
    StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
    try {
        List<Address> address = geoCoder.getFromLocation(lat, lng, 1);
        int maxLines = address.get(0).getMaxAddressLineIndex();
        for (int i=0; i<maxLines; i++) {
            String addressStr = address.get(0).getAddressLine(i);
            builder.append(addressStr);
            builder.append(" ");
        }

        String fnialAddress = builder.toString(); //This is the complete address.

        latituteField.setText(String.valueOf(lat));
        longitudeField.setText(String.valueOf(lng));
        addressField.setText(fnialAddress); //This will display the final address.

    } catch (IOException e) {
        // Handle IOException
    } catch (NullPointerException e) {
        // Handle NullPointerException
    }
}

@Override
public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {


}

@Override
public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
    Toast.makeText(this, "Enabled new provider " + provider,
            Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

}

@Override
