Is it possible to update a currently running Broadcastreceiver from an Activity? For example:
Say the user enters a string…and then hits submit…I want the broadcast receiver to be updated with the new string and use that string instead of an older one that the receiver may have. Is this possible? Or can I somehow stop the old receiver when the user clicks submit and then restart it with the new string?
Maybe I misunderstood your question but why not storing your string in a SharedPreference
Whenever you Activity will need to update that string, it will save it as preference and on the
method of your broadcastreceiver, you just get it back from the preference.
