Setting custom Activity Markers

Activity markers are events that occur in an application during runtime.
Activity lifecycle events are automatically captured by Finotes.

Developers can set custom activity markers anywhere in the app using Fn.setActivityMarker(). These markers will be shown along with the lifecycle events, when an issue is reported.

Activity markers are displayed in their chronological order.
There is no limit to the number of custom markers that can be set by the developer. Only when an issue is raised, these activity markers are sent to the server.

Call anywhere in your project:

Fn.setActivityMarker(PurchaseActivity.this, "clicked on payment_package_two");

How activity trail will look like along with reported issue in Finotes dashboard:

ActivityWelcome:onCreate                            11:19:24:469    45.79% FREE MEMORY 
MapActivity:onCreate 11:19:24:708 44.39%
MapActivity:onStart 11:19:26:983 45.55%
MapActivity:onResume 11:19:27:012 45.19%
ActivityWelcome:onDestroy 11:19:28:515 44.53%
MapActivity:onPause 11:20:17:806 50.45%
PurchaseActivity:onCreate 11:20:18:106 55.19%
PurchaseActivity:onStart 11:20:18:404 55.43%
PurchaseActivity:onResume 11:20:18:906 55.23%
PurchaseActivity:clicked on payment_package_two 11:20:24:235 55.20%

Debug level Activity Markers

Developers can set custom activity markers that are active only in debug builds of the app. This can be achieved using Fn.setActivityMarkerForDebug API.

These markers are not captured in release or production builds.

Call anywhere in your project:

Fn.setActivityMarkerForDebug(this, "User opened invoice");

Obfuscated Activity Trail

When using proguard or other obfuscation tools, the class name in activity trail may be obfuscated.
In order to display meaningful class names in activity trail, developers can set a custom id using @Observe annotation to any class.

Once set 'id' will be shown instead of the obfuscated class name.
Make sure to provide a hardcoded string value to 'id' parameter of @Observe annotation.

Any non-Activity Class:

@Observe(id = "GalleryFragmentClass")
public class GalleryFragment extends Fragment {
