Android Question

Getting Number from Contacts Picker

I am trying to get a contacts name and phone number after a user has picked a contact from the Contact Picker. I am attempting to make my application work for SDK v3 and up so I created an abstract class that would call only the API that I needed. I already have the abstract class working (it chooses the right API) and I also have the API for SDK v3,4 working. I am having problems getting the newer API that uses ContactsContract to work.

I can get a contacts name, but the number it retrieves is always the number for the contact ID BEFORE it! Example: I have 2 contacts "John Doe" and "Jane Doe" with respective numbers "555-555-555" and "777-777-7777" added in the contacts. John Doe is ID=1 and Jane Doe is ID=2. If I attempt to get Jane Doe's number, I get John's, 555-555-5555. If I attempt to get John's, I don't get anything. The check for if (cursor.moveToNext()) fails.

Can you please help me fix this? It is driving me crazy. I have looked at many many examples and always get the same error.

The Intent data is the data Intent from the onActivityResult

 

import java.util.ArrayList;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.database.Cursor;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.provider.ContactsContract;
import android.provider.ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Email;
import android.provider.ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone;
import android.provider.ContactsContract.Contacts;

class NewContactsAdapterBridge extends ContactsAdapterBridge {

ArrayList<String> info = new ArrayList<String>();
ArrayList<String> getInfo (Activity a, Intent data) {
Uri contactData = data.getData();

Cursor cursor = a.managedQuery(contactData, null, null, null, null);

if (cursor.moveToFirst()) {
String id = cursor.getString(
cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts._ID));

String name = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow
(ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME));

String hasPhoneNumber = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow(
ContactsContract.Contacts.HAS_PHONE_NUMBER));
info.add(name);

if (Integer.parseInt(hasPhoneNumber) > 0) {
Uri myPhoneUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(
ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI,
id);

Cursor pCur = a.managedQuery(
myPhoneUri,
null,
null,
null,
null);
if (pCur.moveToNext()) {
String number = pCur.getString( pCur.getColumnIndex
(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.NUMBER));
info.add(number);
}
}
}
return info;
}
}

@Override

    if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {  
        switch (requestCode) {  
        case CONTACT_PICKER_RESULT:

                        selectedNumber = selectedNumber.replace("-", "");
                        phoneInput.setText(selectedNumber);
                    }
                });
                AlertDialog alert = builder.create();
                if(allNumbers.size() > 1) {
                    alert.show();
                } else {
                    String selectedNumber = phoneNumber.toString();
                    selectedNumber = selectedNumber.replace("-", "");
                    phoneInput.setText(selectedNumber);
                }

                if (phoneNumber.length() == 0) {  
                    //no numbers found actions  
                }  
            }  
            break;  
        }  
    } else {
       //activity result error actions
    }  
}

You need to adapt this to work with your app
