<intent-filter>

description:

Adds an action to an intent filter. An <intent-filter> element must contain one or more <action> elements. If it doesn't contain any, no Intent objects will get through the filter. See Intents and Intent Filters for details on intent filters and the role of action specifications within a filter.

attributes:

android:name

The name of the action. Some standard actions are defined in the Intent class as ACTION string constants. To assign one of these actions to this attribute, prepend "android.intent.action." to the string that follows ACTION . For example, for ACTION_MAIN, use "android.intent.action.MAIN" and for ACTION_WEB_SEARCH, use "android.intent.action.WEB_SEARCH".

For actions you define, it's best to use the package name as a prefix to ensure uniqueness. For example, a TRANSMOGRIFY action might be specified as follows:

<action android:name="com.example.project.TRANSMOGRIFY" />
