Android Nfc Example, To Read Tag Information Of Rfid Primal In Addition To Card

Posted on

Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 unproblematic Android event to read information of RFID tag (key as well as bill of fare inward this demo) using NFC.

Edit src/main/AndroidManifest.xml to add together <intent-filter> alongside activity of “android.nfc.action.TAG_DISCOVERED” as well as category of “android.intent.category.DEFAULT”, such that the app volition last started when RFID tag house nigh NFC; if no other apps registered.

And add together <uses-permission> of “android.permission.NFC”, as well as <uses-feature> of “android.hardware.nfc”

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <manifest xmlns:android=""     package="com.blogspot.android_er.androidnfctagdiscovered" >      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.NFC"/>     <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.nfc"         android:required="true"/>      <application         android:allowBackup="true"         android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"         android:label="@string/app_name"         android:supportsRtl="true"         android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >         <activity android:name=".MainActivity" >             <intent-filter>                 <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />                 <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />             </intent-filter>             <intent-filter>                 <action android:name="android.nfc.action.TAG_DISCOVERED"/>                 <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/>             </intent-filter>         </activity>     </application>  </manifest>  


In onCreate():
Create NfcAdapter object yesteryear calling NfcAdapter.getDefaultAdapter(this). And cheque if NFC supported as well as enabled.

Override onResume():
Check if intent is ACTION_TAG_DISCOVERED. if yes, we can obtain a Tag object from the intent, yesteryear calling intent.getParcelableExtra(NfcAdapter.EXTRA_TAG).
