how to use greenrobot to pass data to activity or fragment that has not been initialized yet?

I tried to use greenrobot pass data between activities and fragment,but I couldn't find a suitable tutorial that show how do it in detail.
Based on what I have read so far I wrote some thing like this,but it doesn't work.how can I use green robot to pass data to an activity or fragment that has not been inialized yet?

MainActivity :

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
EventBus.getDefault().post(new String("We are the champions"));
Intent intent = new Intent("com.test.Activity_Lessons");
startActivity(intent);
}


Activity_Lessons :

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
//Some initializations
EventBus.getDefault().register(this);
//Other Stuff
}

public void onEventMainThread(String s){
Toast.makeText(getActivity(), s, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}


The event handler is never called here.what am I doing wrong?

Answer

EventBus has two methods for posting and registering events.In cases which activity or fragment is not yet initialized,we can use registerSticky and postSticky instead of register and post.

here is my own corrected code:

MainActivity :

@Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    EventBus.getDefault().postSticky(new String("We are the champions"));
    Intent intent = new Intent("com.test.Activity_Lessons");
    startActivity(intent);
}

Activity_Lessons :

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    //Some initializations
    EventBus.getDefault().registerSticky(this);
    //Other Stuff
}

public void onEventMainThread(String s){
    Toast.makeText(getActivity(), s, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}
