Send email from Android application

20 10 2012

To handle standard Android share action (e.g. send email) application can call this dialog window, where user can choose share option:

‘Share’ dialog window

To do it, an Android application needs to send intent to Android OS:

public void shareCalculation(){
	Intent emailIntent = utils.prepareEmailIntent(getApplicationContext());
	startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, getString(R.string.email_utils_chooseEmailClient)));

the prepareEmailIntent() method is as follows:

public Intent prepareEmailIntent(Context context) {
	Intent emailIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
	emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, getEmailsArray());		  
	emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, context.getString(R.string.email_subject));
	emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, Html.fromHtml(buildEmailMessage()));

	return emailIntent;
