Android Question

Activate button if the date from is within a given range and if radio button is "yes"

I am making an Android app where i use

DatePickerDialog
and
TimePickerDialog
to get a specific time from the user and a
RadioButton
to know if a requirement is met. I want to activate a button if the time is larger than 3 days, less than 3 weeks and the
RadioButton
"yes" is checked.

I use
DialogFragment
s to get the date and time from the user as well as to update the layout.

MainActivity:

public void showDatePickerDialog(View v) {
DialogFragment newFragment = new DatePickerFragment();
newFragment.show(getFragmentManager(), "datePicker");
}

public void showTimePickerDialog(View v) {
DialogFragment newFragment = new TimePickerFragment();
newFragment.show(getFragmentManager(), "timePicker");
}

public void onRadioButtonClicked(View v) {
// Is the button now checked?
boolean checked = ((RadioButton) v).isChecked();

// Check which radio button was clicked
switch (v.getId()) {
case R.id.yes:
if (checked)
test_button.setEnabled(true);
test_button.setAlpha(1);
break;
case R.id.no:
if (checked)
test_button.setEnabled(false);
test_button.setAlpha(.5f);
break;
}
}


DatePickerFragment:

public class DatePickerFragment extends DialogFragment
implements DatePickerDialog.OnDateSetListener {

@Override
public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// Use the current date as the default date in the picker
final Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
int year = c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
int month = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);
int day = c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);

// Create a new instance of DatePickerDialog and return it
return new DatePickerDialog(getActivity(), this, year, month, day);
}

public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int day) {
Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.set(year, month, day);
Log.w("DatePicker", "Date = " + year + month + year);

// Update date in the view
((TextView) getActivity().findViewById(R.id.dateTextView)).setText(day + " / " + month);
}


This works for the
RadioButton
but I can't get my head wrapped around how to include the date and time. Every time I change the date, time or condition it has to evaluate if the button is going to be activated or deactivated.

Any suggestions?

Answer

I solved it using a DatePickerFragmentListener. When the date or time is changed in the fragments onDateSet in MainActivity will update the time and date and check if it's within the interval > 4 hours and < 2 weeks. The button state will change accordingly and Toast is used if the user picked a date outside the interval or the checkbox is not checked.

DatePickerFragment:

public interface DatePickerFragmentListener {
    void onDateSet(Calendar cal);
}

@Override
public Dialog onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    // Use the current date as the default date in the picker
    final Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
    int year = c.get(Calendar.YEAR);
    int month = c.get(Calendar.MONTH);
    int day = c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);

    // Create a new instance of DatePickerDialog and return it
    // If you're alive you can't be born in the future
    DatePickerDialog dialog = new DatePickerDialog(getActivity(), this, year, month, day);
    dialog.getDatePicker().setMaxDate(System.currentTimeMillis());
    return dialog;
}

public void onDateSet(DatePicker view, int year, int month, int day) {
    Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
    cal.set(year, month, day, 0, 0);
    Log.w("DatePicker", "Date = " + year + month + year);

    // Update date in the view
    ((TextView) getActivity().findViewById(R.id.dateTextView)).setText(
            cal.getDisplayName(Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.LONG, Locale.ENGLISH ) + " " + day);

    // Update listeners
    DatePickerFragmentListener activity = (DatePickerFragmentListener) getActivity();
    activity.onDateSet(cal);
    this.dismiss();
}

MainActivity:

private Calendar birthDate;
private Calendar birthDay;
private Calendar birthTime;
private Calendar cal4Hours;
private Calendar cal2Weeks;

@Override
public void onDateSet(Calendar cal) {
    this.birthDay = cal;
    this.birthDay.clear(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
    this.birthDay.clear(Calendar.HOUR);
    this.birthDay.clear(Calendar.MINUTE);
    calculateBirthDate();
    updateButtonState();
}

@Override
public void onTimeSet(Calendar cal) {
    this.birthTime = cal;
    calculateBirthDate();
    updateButtonState();
}

public void calculateBirthDate() {
    if (this.birthDay == null || this.birthTime == null) {
        // Do nothing
    } else {
        this.birthDate = (Calendar) this.birthDay.clone();
        this.birthDate.set(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, this.birthTime.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY));
        this.birthDate.set(Calendar.HOUR, this.birthTime.get(Calendar.HOUR));
        this.birthDate.set(Calendar.AM_PM, this.birthTime.get(Calendar.AM_PM));
        this.birthDate.set(Calendar.MINUTE, this.birthTime.get(Calendar.MINUTE));
    }
}

public boolean isBirthDateWithinRange() {
    // Reset from and to range
    this.cal4Hours = (Calendar) birthDate.clone();
    this.cal2Weeks = (Calendar) birthDate.clone();
    cal4Hours.add(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, 4);
    cal2Weeks.add(Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR, 2);

    Calendar now = Calendar.getInstance();

    if (now.after(cal4Hours) && now.before(cal2Weeks)) {
        return true;
    } else {
        return false;
    }
}


public void updateButtonState() {
    if (birthDay == null || birthTime == null || lowBirthWeight == null) {
        // do nothing
        test_button.setEnabled(false);
        test_button.setAlpha(.5f);
    } else if (!isBirthDateWithinRange()) {
            Toast.makeText(this, "Your child is too young or old to use the app",
                    Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        test_button.setEnabled(false);
        test_button.setAlpha(.5f);
    } else if (lowBirthWeight == true) {
        Toast.makeText(this,
                "The birth weight has to be more than 2.5 kg for the app to work",
                Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        test_button.setEnabled(false);
        test_button.setAlpha(.5f);
    } else {
        // Enable button
        test_button.setEnabled(true);
        test_button.setAlpha(1);
    }
}
