To Add an Alarm

(skipUI doesn't seem to work, so it always shows the user the Alarm in the clock app).

function butalarm_OnTouch() {

  app.AddAlarmToClock(17, 11, "Alarm!", true)


app.AddAlarmToClock = function(hours, minutes, message, skipUI) {

  const extras = [
      {name: "android.intent.extra.alarm.HOUR", type: "int", value: hours || 0},
      {name: "android.intent.extra.alarm.MINUTES", type: "int", value: minutes || 0}
      extras.push({name: "android.intent.extra.alarm.MESSAGE", type: "string", value: message})
  if(skipUI) // Maybe.
      extras.push({name: "android.intent.extra.alarm.SKIP_UI", type: "boolean", value: true})
  app.SendIntent(null, null, "android.intent.action.SET_ALARM", null, null, null, JSON.stringify(extras))


function cal_si_insert() { var today = new Date().getTime(); var packageName = null; var className = null; var action = “android.intent.action.INSERT”;

var category = null; var uri = “android.intent.Events.CONTENT_URI”; var type = “”;

var extras = [ {name:“description”, type:“string”, value:“DS SendIntent Description”}, {name:“title”, type:“string”, value: “DS SendIntent Title”}, {name:“beginTime”, type:“long”, value: today}, {name:“eventLocation”, type:“string”, value: “DS SendIntent Address”}, {name:“endTime”, type:“long”, value: today + 3600000}, ]

extras = JSON.stringify( extras ); app.SendIntent( packageName, className, action, category, uri, type, extras ); }
