MainActivity.java


package com.manish.callhistory;

import com.manish.callhistory.R;

import android.app.Activity;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
 TextView textView = null;

 @Override
 protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
  setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
  textView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textview_call);
  getCallDetails();
 }

 private void getCallDetails() {

  StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
  Cursor managedCursor = managedQuery(CallLog.Calls.CONTENT_URI, null,
    null, null, null);
  int number = managedCursor.getColumnIndex(CallLog.Calls.NUMBER);
  int type = managedCursor.getColumnIndex(CallLog.Calls.TYPE);
  int date = managedCursor.getColumnIndex(CallLog.Calls.DATE);
  int duration = managedCursor.getColumnIndex(CallLog.Calls.DURATION);
  sb.append("Call Log :");
  while (managedCursor.moveToNext()) {
   String phNumber = managedCursor.getString(number);
   String callType = managedCursor.getString(type);
   String callDate = managedCursor.getString(date);
   Date callDayTime = new Date(Long.valueOf(callDate));
   String callDuration = managedCursor.getString(duration);
   String dir = null;
   int dircode = Integer.parseInt(callType);
   switch (dircode) {
   case CallLog.Calls.OUTGOING_TYPE:
    dir = "OUTGOING";
    break;

   case CallLog.Calls.INCOMING_TYPE:
    dir = "INCOMING";
    break;

   case CallLog.Calls.MISSED_TYPE:
    dir = "MISSED";
    break;
   }
   sb.append("\nPhone Number:--- " + phNumber + " \nCall Type:--- "
     + dir + " \nCall Date:--- " + callDayTime
     + " \nCall duration in sec :--- " + callDuration);
   sb.append("\n----------------------------------");
  }
  //managedCursor.close();
  textView.setText(sb);
 }

}

      String phNumber = managedCursor.getString(number);

      if(phNumber.equles"08888888888"){

      String callType = managedCursor.getString(type); String callDate = managedCursor.getString(date); Date callDayTime = new Date(Long.valueOf(callDate)); String callDuration = managedCursor.getString(duration); String dir = null; int dircode = Integer.parseInt(callType); switch (dircode) { case CallLog.Calls.OUTGOING_TYPE: dir = "OUTGOING"; break; case CallLog.Calls.INCOMING_TYPE: dir = "INCOMING"; break; case CallLog.Calls.MISSED_TYPE: dir = "MISSED"; break; } sb.append("\nPhone Number:--- " + phNumber + " \nCall Type:--- " + dir + " \nCall Date:--- " + callDayTime + " \nCall duration in sec :--- " + callDuration); sb.append("\n----------------------------------"); } //managedCursor.close(); textView.setText(sb); }

      }

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nice tutorial and i just want to ask is it possible to use this coding for charge log instead of call log? if not can you please teach me how to do it...i searched everywhere to find the coding for charge log but still it is hopeless.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Charge log means? Battery charging status? or you want know about call charges when you make call to someone? if yes then it is not possible. It is possible only by your network service provider.

      Delete
    2. Yes, it is for battery charging status, the data which is the time, date, level and status will be recorded each time the USB connected to the phone for charging. Do you have any idea on how to do it?

      Delete
    3. Check this code-
      private BroadcastReceiver batteryInfoReceiver = new BroadcastReceiver() {
      @Override
      public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
      battryLevel = intent.getIntExtra(BatteryManager.EXTRA_LEVEL, 0);
      int scale = intent.getIntExtra(BatteryManager.EXTRA_SCALE, 0);
      int temp = intent.getIntExtra(BatteryManager.EXTRA_TEMPERATURE, 0);
      int voltage = intent.getIntExtra(BatteryManager.EXTRA_VOLTAGE, 0);
      //System.out.println(battryLevel + scale + temp + voltage);
      }
      };

  24. Hello,

    Its really nice and informative tutorial for us. But I am having 1 query regarding the Call logs, this code works fine with single sim devices but its not working properly in case of dual sim. So can you please kindly guide on this that how can we get logs for dual sim. If the api can't do that then how can we find work around because phones like Micromax, Moto g which are dual sim devices are having in built call logs and they are providing these information correctly so that is absolutely possible but I don't know how to go ahead with that. So it would be really great if you can help me in that.

    1. Can't say anything without debug the app. But please check your 100 contacts have phone number. And scrollview is able to scroll till 100 contacts, may be it is scrollview issue.

      Do one thing put your record into Listview instead of StringBuilder and see if it work.
