import android.widget.TimePicker;
import android.widget.Toast;
import android.widget.ToggleButton; import java.util.Calendar; public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity
{ TimePicker alarmTimePicker; PendingIntent pendingIntent; AlarmManager alarmManager; @Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_main); alarmTimePicker = (TimePicker) findViewById(; alarmManager = (AlarmManager) getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE); } public void OnToggleClicked(View view) { long time; if (((ToggleButton) view).isChecked()) { Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "ALARM ON", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance(); calendar.set(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, alarmTimePicker.getCurrentHour()); calendar.set(Calendar.MINUTE, alarmTimePicker.getCurrentMinute()); Intent intent = new Intent(this, AlarmReceiver.class); pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(this, 0, intent, 0); time=(calendar.getTimeInMillis()-(calendar.getTimeInMillis()%60000)); if(System.currentTimeMillis()>time) { if (calendar.AM_PM == 0) time = time + (1000*60*60*12); else time = time + (1000*60*60*24); } alarmManager.setRepeating(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, time, 10000, pendingIntent); } else { alarmManager.cancel(pendingIntent); Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "ALARM OFF", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); } }
