LocalBroadcastManager is Helper to register for and send broadcasts of Intents to local objects within your process. This is has a number of advantages over sending global broadcasts with sendBroadcast(Intent):

  • You know that the data you are broadcasting won’t leave your app, so don’t need to worry about leaking private data.
  • It is not possible for other applications to send these broadcasts to your app, so you don’t need to worry about having security holes they can exploit.
  • It is more efficient than sending a global broadcast through the system.

import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);

    public void onClick(View view) {
        Intent intent = new Intent("Demo");
        intent.putExtra("message", "coderzheaven");

    public void onResume() {

        // Register mMessageReceiver to receive messages.
                new IntentFilter("Demo"));

    // handler for received Intents for the "Demo" event
    private BroadcastReceiver mMessageReceiver = new BroadcastReceiver() {
        public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
            String message = intent.getStringExtra("message");
            Log.d("receiver", "Received message: " + message);
            ((TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView1)).setText("Received : "+ message);

    protected void onPause() {
