BroadcastReceiver for Screen On/Off in ANDROID

If wanted to call a broadcast for screen on/off you can get the code sniffet from here.
Here I have used dynamic calling of Broadcast and the java source code is given below.

get more details about broadcast from :
in java file:
public class MainActivity extends Activity {
  //Create broadcast object
    BroadcastReceiver mybroadcast = new BroadcastReceiver() {
  //When Event is published, onReceive method is called
  public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
   // TODO Auto-generated method stub
       Log.i("[BroadcastReceiver]", "MyReceiver");

              Log.i("[BroadcastReceiver]", "Screen ON");
          else if(intent.getAction().equals(Intent.ACTION_SCREEN_OFF)){
              Log.i("[BroadcastReceiver]", "Screen OFF");

   public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
       registerReceiver(mybroadcast, new IntentFilter(Intent.ACTION_SCREEN_ON));
       registerReceiver(mybroadcast, new IntentFilter(Intent.ACTION_SCREEN_OFF));
