Well thanks. But I think You did not understand me correctly.

look, this code
dim i as intent
i.Initialize(i.ACTION_VIEW, "file://" & File.DirDefaultExternal & "/test.pdf")
i.SetType("application/pdf")

StartActivity(i)
must open application what was set as default for .pdf extension or open chooser with list of applications which can open .pdf After what application will launch and test.pdf will be open automatically inside application.
But I am looking for the code where I can programmably launch the application that I will decide to open the test.pdf. Test.pdf file must also open automatically inside this application. And No chooser must opening.
Thanks

Yes I want to open .pdf or any other extension with external application what was installed on my android device. But I want to choose this application programmably, without opening android chooser. What I will do :
First - I get intent one of installed application what can open .pdf . I know already how to do this.
Second - What I am looking for _ How to run this application by using StartActivity(i) where i is intent of this external application with desired PDF file simultaneously.??? PDF file must open inside external application automatically!
Thanks

Sorry
But there is no PackageManager.QueryActivityIntent in phone library ver 2.40
just PackageManager.QueryIntentActivities

Well I got it and done it!
I used PackageManager.QueryIntentActivities() and intent.SetComponent()

Thank you very much Erel. You saved me.
