Basic AsyncTaskLoader

AsyncTaskLoader is an abstract Loader that provides an AsyncTask to do the work.

Here some basic implementation:

final class BasicLoader extends AsyncTaskLoader<String> {

    public BasicLoader(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }

    @Override
    public String loadInBackground() {
        // Some work, e.g. load something from internet
        return "OK";
    }

    @Override
    public void deliverResult(String data) {
        if (isStarted()) {
            // Deliver result if loader is currently started
            super.deliverResult(data);
        }
    }

    @Override
    protected void onStartLoading() {
        // Start loading
        forceLoad();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onStopLoading() {
        cancelLoad();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onReset() {
        super.onReset();

        // Ensure the loader is stopped
        onStopLoading();
    }
}

Typically Loader is initialized within the activity’s onCreate() method, or within the fragment’s onActivityCreated(). Also usually activity or fragment implements LoaderManager.LoaderCallbacks interface:

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements LoaderManager.LoaderCallbacks<String> {

    // Unique id for loader
    private static final int LDR_BASIC_ID = 1;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        // Initialize loader; Some data can be passed as second param instead of Bundle.Empty
        getLoaderManager().initLoader(LDR_BASIC_ID, Bundle.EMPTY, this);
    }

    @Override
    public Loader<String> onCreateLoader(int id, Bundle args) {
        return new BasicLoader(this);
    }

    @Override
    public void onLoadFinished(Loader<String> loader, String data) {
        Toast.makeText(this, data, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
    }

    @Override
    public void onLoaderReset(Loader<String> loader) {
    }
}

In this example, when loader completed, toast with result will be shown.
