Passing a KiiObject between Activities

The KiiUser class and the KiiObject class can be passed, for example, by using the Intent class in Android because those classes implement the Parcelable interface.

For example, you can pass a KiiObject instance to another activity with the sample code below. You can pass a KiiUser instance in a similar way.

This code passes a KiiObject.

// Create a KiiObject in an application-scope bucket.
KiiObject sendObject = Kii.bucket("mydata").object();

// Set key-value pairs to the KiiObject.
sendObject.set("score", 987);
sendObject.set("mode", "easy");
sendObject.set("premiumUser", false);

// Put the KiiObject to an intent.
Intent intent = new Intent(this, ReceiverActivity.class);
intent.putExtra("object", sendObject);

// Send the intent.

This code receives a KiiObject.

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

  // Receive a KiiObject with the getParcelableExtra() method.
  KiiObject receivedObject = getIntent().getParcelableExtra("object");

  // Get key-value pairs.
  int score = receivedObject.getInt("score");
  String mode = receivedObject.getString("mode");
  boolean premiumUser = receivedObject.getBoolean("premiumUser");
