Android Fatal Error - Can not perform this action after onSaveInstanceState

I'm attempting to perform a fragment transaction after requesting permissions in Android - however the app continually crashes. How might this code be changed in order to avoid this?

Any assistance is appreciated.

CHECK PERMISSIONS BEFORE SENDING EMAIL:

private void emailShare() {
if (mayRequestContacts()) {
emailShareImpl();
}
}


CHECK PERMISSIONS:

private boolean mayRequestContacts() {
if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT < Build.VERSION_CODES.M) {
return true;
}

requestPermissions(new String[]{READ_CONTACTS}, REQUEST_READ_CONTACTS);

return false;
}


PERMISSION CHECK RESULT:

@Override
public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, String[] permissions, int[] grantResults) {
if (requestCode == REQUEST_READ_CONTACTS) {
if (grantResults.length == 1 && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
emailShareImpl();
}
}
}


INITIATE FRAGMENT TRANSACTION IF PERMISSION GRANTED:

private void emailShareImpl() {
FragmentManager fragmentManager = getActivity().getSupportFragmentManager();
EmailReferDialog mEmailReferDialog = new EmailReferDialog();
mEmailReferDialog.setCancelable(true);
mEmailReferDialog.show(fragmentManager, "EMAIL_REFER_DIALOG");
}

Answer

This happens because onRequestPermissionresult is called before activity's onResume. You can simply fix this by following:

private boolean mShareEmail = false;

@Override
public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, String[] permissions, int[] grantResults) {
    if (requestCode == REQUEST_READ_CONTACTS) {
        if (grantResults.length == 1 && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
            mShareEmail = true;
        }
    }
}

@Override
public void onResume() {
    super.onResume();
    if (mShareEmail) {
        emailShareImpl();
        mShareEmail = false;
    }
}
