Android – onActivityResult is not being called in Fragment


The activity hosting this fragment has its onActivityResult called when the camera activity returns.

My fragment starts an activity for a result with the intent sent for the camera to take a picture. The picture application loads fine, takes a picture, and returns. The onActivityResult however is never hit. I've set breakpoints, but nothing is triggered. Can a fragment have onActivityResult? I'd think so since it's a provided function. Why isn't this being triggered?

ImageView myImage = (ImageView)inflatedView.findViewById(;
myImage.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
    public void onClick(View view) {
        Intent cameraIntent = new Intent(android.provider.MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
        startActivityForResult(cameraIntent, 1888);

public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if( requestCode == 1888 ) {
        Bitmap photo = (Bitmap) data.getExtras().get("data");

Best Solution

The hosting activity overrides onActivityResult(), but it did not make a call to super.onActivityResult() for unhandled result codes. Apparently, even though the fragment is the one making the startActivityForResult() call, the activity gets the first shot at handling the result. This makes sense when you consider the modularity of fragments. Once I implemented super.onActivityResult() for all unhandled results, the fragment got a shot at handling the result.

And also from @siqing answer:

To get the result in your fragment make sure you call startActivityForResult(intent,111); instead of getActivity().startActivityForResult(intent,111); inside your fragment.
