Notification demo android 12

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am trying to deploy the crossplatform notification demo on android 12 according to the readme.md file coming along in the same folder as the project file.

As soon as I hit the "start service" button, the service is not started and the app closes.


I already tried to get some substantial info by starting monitor.bat but without success.

If you're referring to this demo: https://github.com/Embarcadero/RADStudio11Demos/tree/main/Object Pascal/Multi-Device Samples/Device Sensors and Services/AndroidNotificationServiceDemo

There seems to be some missing information in the project file because it does not even add the service to the manifest, and the service jar is not listed under the Libraries node of the Android platform in Project Manager. What I did to rectify this was to:

  1. Right-click the Android platform node in Project Manager
  2. Click Remove Android Services
  3. Select the checkbox next to the service in the list
  4. Click Next
  5. Click Finish
  6. Right-click the Android platform node in Project Manager again
  7. Click Add Android Service
  8. Click Next
  9. Select the path to the service, i.e. AndroidNotificationServiceDemo\NotificationService
  10. Click Select Folder
  11. Click Next
  12. Click Finish

Then recompile/deploy/run


After you click Start Service, a notification should appear soon after in the system status bar. Opening the notification and tapping on it should open the app and the notification info should appear in the memo

Hello Dave,


thanks for the advice but this is not working for me. The manifest is a good point and I took a look at it.


Even after re-adding the service I do not see it in the manifest.xml of the main app.
