Android Code Snippet Register User example using OkHttpUtils2

Register User example using OkHttpUtils2

Demo1.png Demo2.png Demo3.png Demo4.png Demo5.png Demo6.png

Introduction
This code snippet is based on the thread posted by KMatle in Tutorials & Examples. You can modify the layout and add in to your apps so that registered members can use your app by logging in using their user id and password.

How it works
This app starts by checking for connection by sending a request to the server and wait for a reply. The PHP script in the server will process the request and send back a JSON string. The screen will show "Connection success" if it is getting a response from the server.

Tap on the 'Register' button and the app will open up a new activity where information such as user id, password and email are required for the registration process. The data submitted will be stored in a MySQL database. An email will be sent to the user. If the user id or email is already registered before, a message will show "The user id '[YourUserID]' or email ([YourEmail]) is already in use". Open the email and click on the link to finish the registration process.

After successful register, you can press the 'Login' button to open up the Login activity. If you try to log in without activating your account at the first place, the app will show a message "Account is not activated!". Key in your user id and password and tap on the 'Login' button. If user id and password are incorrect, the app will show a message "Wrong User ID or Password!". If log in success, the app will show a message "Welcome, [YourFullName]" in a new activity showing a list of registered members in a listview.

This code snippet demonstrates of the usage of :
1. HttpUtils2 to connect to MySQL database located in a free hosting provider (using PHP web services and JSONParser)
2. Multiple Activity and Layout
3. SQL commands to Insert and Update records in MySQL database tables
4. Regular expression to check the email format
5. PHP Mail() function to send mail to the new member for activation and notify the administrator.
6. ListView for populating records stored in MySQL database table

Note that you can add more functions such as password hashing, retrieve forgotten password and using Captcha verification.

Version 1.1 (Update 07 July 2015)
- Rename a field in database table tbl_member from "status" to "reg_status"
- Added "(Online)" beside user name in listview
- Added a Log out button and signout.php
- Fixed signin.php showing 'null' user name

Version 1.2 (Update 10 Mar 2016)
- Retrieve Password
- Reset Password

Reupload PHP files (Update 19 Apr 2016)
Due to many confusion of register.php in a line of code somewhere in signup.php script, I have reuploaded PHP.zip in attachment. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Version 1.3 (Update 08 Feb 2019)
- Set targetSdkVersion=26
- Replaced HttpUtils2 with OkHttpUtils2
- Changed conflicting Job names with module names
- Added Change Password activity
- Removed Forgot Password activity
- Replaced MySQL functions in PHP script with MySQLi functions
- Added db.php in PHP script to store global variables

I think you also need to modify the following
$message = 'Hi ' . $row[user_name]. ',' . "\r\n" . 'this is your password as requested. : password=' . $row[pass_word];
to
$username = $row["user_name"];
$password = $row["pass_word"];
$message = 'Hi ' . $username . ',' . "\r\n" . 'This is your password as requested. : password : ' . $password;

Try to understand the code and further on you can create the activity for "Change Password".

@aeric .. many thanks for the thread, having not much experience with PHP it was of great help.

I was wondering if you could look at / edit the Update for signin.php Post #3. I found it a bit confusing and feel others might also.

Your Updated signin.php Post#3
PHP:
if ($count == 0) {
   print json_encode ("Not Found");
}
else {
// if ($row = mysql_fetch_array($res)) {
   if ($row["status"] == "M") {
      print json_encode ("Not Activate");
   }
  else {
    $res = mysql_query("UPDATE tbl_member SET logins = logins + 1 WHERE user_id = '$uid'");
    print json_encode ($row["user_name"]);
  }
// }
}//mysql_free_result($res);
?>

I finally managed to get it working with ...
PHP:
if ($count == 0) {
  print json_encode ("Not Found");
}

else {
   $row = mysql_fetch_array($res);    //  *******  this row commented
   if ($row["status"] == "M") {
      print json_encode ("Not Activate");
   }
   else {
      $res = mysql_query("UPDATE tbl_member SET logins = logins + 1 WHERE user_id = '$uid'");
      print json_encode ($row["user_name"]);
   }
}
?>


Something else that too some time to find cause of error ..
B4A code in the LogIn activity ...
B4X:
Sub JobDone (Job As HttpJob)
   ProgressDialogHide
   If Job.Success = True Then
    '.............
    '.............

  Else If act = "Not Activated" Then  ' Change to "Not Activate"


One more question ... After some reading I'm led to believe it is not wise to store login info directly
in the script php's located in public folders but rather in a separate php file in the 'Root folder' and use
'Include' keyword and the path to the php file .. ie:

PHP:
<?php

include ("/home/my_webhost_account/config.php");

$con = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pw) or die(mysql_error());
//.........................

Any info / advice appreciated .. Thanks and Regards

Thanks for your suggestions. This example is for learning purpose. May not suitable for production. Actually I have little experience in php too. For my production app, I am now using pdo and encryption. I also store my database login on separate file and use include.
