onActivityResult not wait results

I have this code:

in class MainActivity when SettingButton is pressed:

static final int DUMP_REQUEST = 1;

public void onSettingButtonClick(View button)
    //call options menu activity
    Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, OptionsMenuActivity.class);
    startActivityForResult(intent, DUMP_REQUEST);

protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data)
    if (requestCode == DUMP_REQUEST)
        if (resultCode == RESULT_OK)
            Log.e("onActivityResult", "resultOK");
            Log.e("onActivityResult", "result_not_Ok");

in class OptionsMenuActivity when SaveButton is pressed:

public void onSaveButtonClicked(View v)
    String dumpDb="true";
    Intent intent = new Intent();
    intent.putExtra("DUMP", dumpDb);

    setResult(RESULT_OK, intent);

When I press SettingButton, OptionsMenuActivity starts, and immediately appears the Log:

E/onActivityResult´╣Ľ result_not_Ok

When I click the SaveButton, OptionsMenuActivity is closed and MainActivity runs.


My problem is that onActivityResult() not waits for the result until I press SaveButton, and never resultCode == RESULT_OK, so never I can do my stuff depending on OptionsMenuActivity state


Maybe your OptionsMenuActivity has in manifest launchmode equal to singletask? This is an excerpt from startActivityForResults doc:

For example, if the activity you are launching uses the singleTask launch mode, it will not run in your task and thus you will immediately receive a cancel result.
