launch sms application with an intent


Question

I have a question about an intent... I try to launch the sms app...

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);
intent.setType("vnd.android-dir/mms-sms");
int flags = Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP |
    Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP;
intent.setFlags(flags);
intent.setData(Uri.parse("content://sms/inbox"));
context.startActivity(intent);

so, you can see that I put too much things in my intent, but that's because I don't know how I can do... Thank's

To start launch the sms activity all you need is this:

Intent sendIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);         
sendIntent.setData(Uri.parse("sms:"));

You can add extras to populate your own message and such like this

sendIntent.putExtra("sms_body", x); 

then just startActivity with the intent.

startActivity(sendIntent);
