“NLService” Class is the actual Notification Listener class that can hear events in your notification.
But before everything you need to be sure that, you have enabled notification access for your app.

[java]
package com.coderzheaven.customnotificationdownloaddemo;

import android.annotation.SuppressLint;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.service.notification.NotificationListenerService;
import android.service.notification.StatusBarNotification;
import android.util.Log;

@SuppressLint("NewApi")
public class NLService extends NotificationListenerService {
private String TAG = this.getClass().getSimpleName();
public static final String NOT_TAG = "com.coderzheaven.NOTIFICATION_LISTENER";
public static final String NOT_POSTED = "POSTED";
public static final String NOT_REMOVED = "REMOVED";
public static final String NOT_EVENT_KEY = "not_key";

@Override
public void onCreate() {
super.onCreate();
}

@Override
public void onDestroy() {
super.onDestroy();
}

@Override
public void onNotificationPosted(StatusBarNotification sbn) {
Log.i(TAG, "********** onNotificationPosted");
Intent i = new Intent(NOT_TAG);
i.putExtra(NOT_EVENT_KEY, NOT_POSTED);
sendBroadcast(i);
}

@Override
public void onNotificationRemoved(StatusBarNotification sbn) {
Log.i(TAG, "********** onNOtificationRemoved");
Intent i = new Intent(NOT_TAG);
i.putExtra(NOT_EVENT_KEY, NOT_REMOVED);
sendBroadcast(i);
}

}
[/java]

Make sure you add the “services” in the AndroidManifest file.

[xml]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.coderzheaven.customnotificationdownloaddemo"

<application

android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
<activity

<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
<service
