Android Question

how can we know that an Android Application is closed?


I am developing an Android Application to download an .mp3 file from
server. When downloading is finished the file will be stored in a
DIFFRENT EXTENSION (.srt) . and when the user clicked on the play
button the file's EXTENSION will be changed back into .mp3 and play
And when the user exit's the Application the file will go back to the
(.srt) format.


Everything works Fine . But now if the user close the application without pressing BackKey the extension will be the same.

my code is

public void onBackPressed() {
new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
.setTitle("Really Exit?")
.setMessage("Are you sure you want to exit?")
.setNegativeButton(android.R.string.no, null)
.setPositiveButton(android.R.string.yes, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {

public void onClick(DialogInterface arg0, int arg1) {
File file = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Jithin's/downloadedfile.mp3"); // handler to your ZIP file
File file2 = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Jithin's/downloadedfile.srt");
// destination dir of your file
boolean success = file.renameTo(file2);
System.exit(0);

}
}).create().show();

}


if the user not Exiting through the proper way the function inside the exit button not works.

Answer

Create a new service from Android Studio File->New ->Service ->Service then override the onStartCommand method like this

@Override
public int onStartCommand(Intent intent, int flags, int startId) {
File file  = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Jithin's/downloadedfile.mp3"); // handler to your ZIP file
File file2 = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Jithin's/downloadedfile.srt");
 // destination dir of your file
 boolean success = file.renameTo(file2);
 MyService.this.stopService(intent);
    return super.onStartCommand(intent, flags, startId);
 }

then you can start it from onstop method of your activity by this

protected void onStop(){
super.onStop();
Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this,MyService.class);
startService(intent);
}

or you can do the same in onStop method like this

protected void onStop(){
super.onStop();
File file  = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Jithin's/downloadedfile.mp3"); // handler to your ZIP file
 File file2 = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString() + "/Jithin's/downloadedfile.srt");
 // destination dir of your file
 boolean success = file.renameTo(file2);
 }
