To run other application, you need to build data: ```javascript var sApp = startApp.set({} params , {} extras); ``` | Param | Description | Default | Values | | --- | --- | --- | --- | | noParse | Disable find action and category in Intent package | false | Boolean | | intent | Intent(String action) | null | String | | application | Intent (Context packageContext) | null | String | | action | Intent setAction) | null | String || | category | Intent addCategory) | null | String | | type | Intent setType) | null | String | | package | Intent setPackage) | null | String | | uri | Intent Uri) | null | String | | flags | Intent setFlags) | null | String | | component | Intent setComponent) | null | String | | intentstart | set type of start intent | startActivity | startActivity, startActivityForResult, sendBroadcast | Extras as a set of key-value: ```js {
"key1": "value1", // String
"key2": "value2", // String
"key3": 100, // Integer,
"key4": true // Boolean
} ``` Example ```javascript var sApp = startApp.set({ / params /
"action":"ACTION_MAIN",
"category":"CATEGORY_DEFAULT",
"type":"text/css",
"package":"com.lampa.startapp",
"uri":"file://data/index.html",
"flags":["FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP","FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TASK"],
"component": ["com.app.name","com.app.name.Activity"],
"intentstart":"startActivity",
}, { / extras /
"EXTRA_STREAM":"extraValue1",
"extraKey2":100500
}); ``` ``startApp.set()`` return object: ```javascript sApp.start(function() { / success /
console.log("OK");
}, function(error) { / fail /
alert(error);
}, function() { // optional broadcast and forResult callback
console.log(arguments);
}); ``` or ```javascript sApp.check(function(values) { / success /
console.log(values);
}, function(error) { / fail /
alert(error);
}); ``` If success, ``values` contains data: versionName, packageName, versionCode and applicationInfo`. To get all extra fields use method ``extraFiels``: ```javascript startApp.extraFields(function(fields) { / success /
console.log(fields);
}, function() { / fail / }); ``` Variable ``fields`` contains object array, example: ```javascript {
"extraKey1":"extraValue1",
"extraKey2":"extraValue2"
} ``` To get one extra field use method ``getExtra``: ```javascript startApp.getExtra(field, function(value) { / success /
console.log(fields);
}, function() { / fail / }); ``` Variable ``field`` is a String. Variable ``value`` contains String value. To has one extra field use method ``extraField``: ```javascript startApp.hasExtra(field, function() { / success /
console.log(fields);
}, function() { / fail / }); ``` Variable ``field`` is a String.
Samples
Set application as only package name: ```js var sApp = startApp.set({
"application":"com.application.name"
}).start(); ``` Set application as intent value and flag (issue): ```js var sApp = startApp.set({
"intent": "com.shazam.android.intent.actions.START_TAGGING",
"flags": ["FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK"]
}).start(); ```
Set application as package and activity: ```js var sApp = startApp.set({
"component": ["com.app.name","com.app.name.Activity"]
}).start(); ```
Set application as action, package, type and Uri: ```js var sApp = startApp.set({ / params /
"action":"ACTION_MAIN",
"type":"text/css",
"package":"com.lampa.startapp",
"uri":"file://data/index.html"
}).start(); ```
Start application with extra fields ```js var sApp = startApp.set({ / params /
"component": ["com.app.name","com.app.name.Activity"]
}, { / extras /
"extraKey1":"extraValue1",
"extraKey2":"extraValue2"
}).start(); ```
Start listening broadcast ```js var sApp = startApp.set("RECEIVERNAME"); sApp.receiver(function(compete) { // if receiver is registered
$messages.prepend("<div>id broadcast: " + compete + "</div>");
}, function(error) {
$messages.prepend("<div class='err'>" + error + "</div>");
}, function(action, extras) { // receiver message
$messages.prepend("<div>" + action + ", " + JSON.stringify(extras)  + "</div>");
}); `````` Start application with result ```js var sApp = startApp.set({
"action":"ACTION_MAIN",
"package":"com.lampa.startapp",
"intentstart":"startActivityForResult",
}); sApp.start(function(compete) { // if receiver is registered
console.log(compete);
}, function(error) {
console.error(error);
}, function(result, requestCode, resultCode) { // result message
$messages.prepend("<div>" + JSON.stringify(result) + ", " + requestCode + ", " + resultCode + "</div>");
}); ``` Send broadcast ```js var sApp = startApp.set({ / params /
"action":"RECEIVER_NAME",
"intentstart":"sendBroadcast",
"noParseAction": true // disable parse action value
}, {
"extraKey1":"extraValue1",
"extraKey2":"extraValue2"
}); sApp.start(function(compete) {
console.log(compete);
}, function(error) {
console.error(error);
