Android Shared preferences example

Create SharedPreferences

SharedPreferences pref = getApplicationContext().getSharedPreferences("MyPref", MODE_PRIVATE); 
Editor editor = pref.edit();

Storing data as KEY/VALUE pair

editor.putBoolean("key_name1", true);           // Saving boolean - true/false
editor.putInt("key_name2", "int value");        // Saving integer
editor.putFloat("key_name3", "float value");    // Saving float
editor.putLong("key_name4", "long value");      // Saving long
editor.putString("key_name5", "string value");  // Saving string

// Save the changes in SharedPreferences
editor.commit(); // commit changes

Get SharedPreferences data

// If value for key not exist then return second param value - In this case null

boolean userFirstLogin= pref.getBoolean("key_name1", true);  // getting boolean
int pageNumber=pref.getInt("key_name2", 0);             // getting Integer
float amount=pref.getFloat("key_name3", null);          // getting Float
long distance=pref.getLong("key_name4", null);          // getting Long
String email=pref.getString("key_name5", null);         // getting String

Deleting Key value from SharedPreferences

editor.remove("key_name3"); // will delete key key_name3
editor.remove("key_name4"); // will delete key key_name4

// Save the changes in SharedPreferences
editor.commit(); // commit changes

Clear all data from SharedPreferences

 editor.commit(); // commit changes
