Example of using Notification.Builder

android.app.Notification.Builder is a builder class for Notification objects. Provides a convenient way to set the various fields of a Notification and generate content views using the platform's notification layout template. If your app supports versions of Android as old as API level 4, you can instead use NotificationCompat.Builder, available in the Android Support library.

  super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
  setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
  Button buttonSend = (Button)findViewById(R.id.send);
  buttonSend.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener(){

   @Override

    Context context = getApplicationContext();
    Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(myBlog));
    PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(
      MainActivity.this, 
      0, 
      myIntent, 
      Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
      
    myNotification = new Notification.Builder(context)
          .setContentTitle("Exercise of Notification!")
          .setContentText("http://android-er.blogspot.com/")
          .setTicker("Notification!")
          .setWhen(System.currentTimeMillis())
          .setContentIntent(pendingIntent)
          .setDefaults(Notification.DEFAULT_SOUND)
          .setAutoCancel(true)
          .setSmallIcon(R.drawable.ic_launcher)
          .build();
    
    notificationManager = (NotificationManager)getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
    notificationManager.notify(MY_NOTIFICATION_ID, myNotification);

   }});

 }

}



<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"

        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@string/hello_world" />

Sorry, I can't repeat the error of "add cast to method receiver".

It is likely that the error will not happen to have minimum SDK = 16. Excuse my horrible English.
