How do I display an alert dialog on Android?


Question

I want to display a dialog/popup window with a message to the user that shows "Are you sure you want to delete this entry?" with one button that says 'Delete'. When Delete is touched, it should delete that entry, otherwise nothing.

I have written a click listener for those buttons, but how do I invoke a dialog or popup and its functionality?

Try this code:

AlertDialog.Builder builder1 = new AlertDialog.Builder(context);
builder1.setMessage("Write your message here.");
builder1.setCancelable(true);

builder1.setPositiveButton(
    "Yes",
    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
            dialog.cancel();
        }
    });

builder1.setNegativeButton(
    "No",
    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
            dialog.cancel();
        }
    });

AlertDialog alert11 = builder1.create();
alert11.show();

The code which David Hedlund has posted gave me the error:

Unable to add window — token null is not valid

If you are getting the same error use the below code. It works!!

runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
    @Override
    public void run() {

        if (!isFinishing()){
            new AlertDialog.Builder(YourActivity.this)
              .setTitle("Your Alert")
              .setMessage("Your Message")
              .setCancelable(false)
              .setPositiveButton("ok", new OnClickListener() {
                  @Override
                  public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                      // Whatever...
                  }
              }).show();
        }
    }
});

Just a simple one! Create a dialog method, something like this anywhere in your Java class:

public void openDialog() {
    final Dialog dialog = new Dialog(context); // Context, this, etc.
    dialog.setContentView(R.layout.dialog_demo);
    dialog.setTitle(R.string.dialog_title);
    dialog.show();
}

Now create Layout XML dialog_demo.xml and create your UI/design. Here is a sample one I created for demo purposes:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content">

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/dialog_info"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:padding="10dp"
        android:text="@string/dialog_text"/>

    <LinearLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="40dp"
        android:layout_below="@id/dialog_info">

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/dialog_cancel"
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:layout_weight="0.50"
            android:background="@color/dialog_cancel_bgcolor"
            android:text="Cancel"/>

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/dialog_ok"
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:layout_weight="0.50"
            android:background="@color/dialog_ok_bgcolor"
            android:text="Agree"/>
    </LinearLayout>
</RelativeLayout>

Now you can call openDialog() from anywhere you like :) Here is the screenshot of above code.

Note that text and color are used from strings.xml and colors.xml. You can define your own.

Use AlertDialog.Builder :

AlertDialog alertDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
//set icon 
 .setIcon(android.R.drawable.ic_dialog_alert)
//set title
.setTitle("Are you sure to Exit")
//set message
.setMessage("Exiting will call finish() method")
//set positive button
.setPositiveButton("Yes", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialogInterface, int i) {
   //set what would happen when positive button is clicked    
        finish();
    }
})
//set negative button
.setNegativeButton("No", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialogInterface, int i) {
   //set what should happen when negative button is clicked
        Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),"Nothing Happened",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
    }
})
.show();

You will get the following output.

Nowadays it's better to use DialogFragment instead of direct AlertDialog creation.
