Android: How to pass Parcelable object to intent and use getParcelable method of bundle?

Why bundle has

getParcelableArrayList
,
getParcelable
methods; but
Intent
has only
putParcelableArrayListExtra
method?
Can I transmit only
object<T>
, not
ArrayList
of one element?
Then, what is
getParcelable
for?

Answer

Intent provides bunch of overloading putExtra() methods.

Suppose you have a class Foo implements Parcelable properly, to put it into Intent in an Activity:

Intent intent = new Intent(getBaseContext(), NextActivity.class);
Foo foo = new Foo();
intent.putExtra("foo ", foo);
startActivity(intent);

To get it from intent in another activity:

Foo foo = getIntent().getExtras().getParcelable("foo");

Hope this helps.
