Java Question

ActivityCompat.requestPermissions not showing dialog box

if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(RegisterActivity.this, Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE) == PackageManager.PERMISSION_DENIED){
ActivityCompat.requestPermissions(this,
new String[]{Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE}, REQUEST_READ_PHONE_STATE_PERMISSION);


i'm trying to use this function on nexus 5 api 23 and its just not showing me the dialog box like its supposed to do, it's just not doing anything.
what could cause the problem? (this code is in the java activity)
i tried changing my minimum api to 23 and use the requestPermissions() without the ActivityCompat but still not working.

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
compileSdkVersion 23
buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"

defaultConfig {
applicationId "com.example.idanayzen.photomap"
minSdkVersion 23
targetSdkVersion 23
versionCode 1
versionName "1.0"
}
buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
}
}
}

dependencies {
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:8.4.0'
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.1.1'
}


and the Manifest:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.example.idanayzen.photomap">

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_SMS" />

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:supportsRtl="true"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme">


<meta-data
android:name="com.google.android.geo.API_KEY"
android:value="@string/google_maps_key" />

<activity
android:name=".MapsActivity"
android:label="@string/title_activity_maps" />
<activity android:name=".RegisterActivity">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
<activity android:name=".WrongPhoneNum"></activity>
</application>

</manifest>

Answer

Here's an example of using requestPermissions():

First, define the permission (as you did in your post) in the manifest, otherwise, your request will automatically be denied:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />

Next, define a value to handle the permission callback, in onRequestPermissionsResult():

private final int REQUEST_PERMISSION_PHONE_STATE=1;

Here's the code to call requestPermissions():

private void showPhoneStatePermission() {
    int permissionCheck = ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(
            this, Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE);
    if (permissionCheck != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
        if (ActivityCompat.shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale(this,
                Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE)) {
            showExplanation("Permission Needed", "Rationale", Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE, REQUEST_PERMISSION_PHONE_STATE);
        } else {
            requestPermission(Manifest.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE, REQUEST_PERMISSION_PHONE_STATE);
        }
    } else {
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Permission (already) Granted!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    }
}

First, you check if you already have permission (remember, even after being granted permission, the user can later revoke the permission in the App Settings.)

And finally, this is how you check if you received permission or not:

@Override
public void onRequestPermissionsResult(
        int requestCode,
        String permissions[],
        int[] grantResults) {
    switch (requestCode) {
        case REQUEST_PERMISSION_PHONE_STATE:
            if (grantResults.length > 0
                    && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Permission Granted!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            } else {
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Permission Denied!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
    }
}
