Class SearchRecentSuggestions

java.lang.Object
  extended by android.provider.SearchRecentSuggestions

public class SearchRecentSuggestions
extends Object

This is a utility class providing access to SearchRecentSuggestionsProvider.

Unlike some utility classes, this one must be instantiated and properly initialized, so that it can be configured to operate with the search suggestions provider that you have created.

Typically, you will do this in your searchable activity, each time you receive an incoming ACTION_SEARCH Intent. The code to record each incoming query is as follows:

      SearchSuggestions suggestions = new SearchSuggestions(this, 
              MySuggestionsProvider.AUTHORITY, MySuggestionsProvider.MODE);
      suggestions.saveRecentQuery(queryString, null);
 

For a working example, see SearchSuggestionSampleProvider and SearchQueryResults in samples/ApiDemos/app.

static String[] QUERIES_PROJECTION_1LINE
          This is the database projection that can be used to view saved queries, when configured for one-line operation.
static String[] QUERIES_PROJECTION_2LINE
          This is the database projection that can be used to view saved queries, when configured for two-line operation.

static int QUERIES_PROJECTION_QUERY_INDEX

          Although provider utility classes are typically static, this one must be constructed because it needs to be initialized using the same values that you provided in your SearchRecentSuggestionsProvider.
 
Method Summary
 void clearHistory()
          Completely delete the history.
 void saveRecentQuery(String queryString, String line2)
          Add a query to the recent queries list.

Constructor Detail

SearchRecentSuggestions

public SearchRecentSuggestions(Context context,
                               String authority,
                               int mode)
Although provider utility classes are typically static, this one must be constructed because it needs to be initialized using the same values that you provided in your SearchRecentSuggestionsProvider.

Parameters:
authority - This must match the authority that you've declared in your manifest.
mode - You can use mode flags here to determine certain functional aspects of your database. Note, this value should not change from run to run, because when it does change, your suggestions database may be wiped.

Method Detail

saveRecentQuery

public void saveRecentQuery(String queryString,
                            String line2)
Add a query to the recent queries list.

Parameters:
queryString - The string as typed by the user. This string will be displayed as the suggestion, and if the user clicks on the suggestion, this string will be sent to your searchable activity (as a new search query).
line2 - If you have configured your recent suggestions provider with SearchRecentSuggestionsProvider.DATABASE_MODE_2LINES, you can pass a second line of text here. It will be shown in a smaller font, below the primary suggestion. When typing, matches in either line of text will be displayed in the list. If you did not configure two-line mode, or if a given suggestion does not have any additional text to display, you can pass null here.

clearHistory

public void clearHistory()
Completely delete the history. Use this call to implement a "clear history" UI.


truncateHistory

protected void truncateHistory(ContentResolver cr,
                               int maxEntries)
Reduces the length of the history table, to prevent it from growing too large.

Parameters:
cr - Convenience copy of the content resolver.
maxEntries - Max entries to leave in the table. 0 means remove all entries.
