    This drew a big goose egg over on Stack Overflow (CLICKY), so I thought I'd give it a whirl here:

    I'm writing a widget with a configuration activity that needs to force an update after the activity is complete. The activity has a button whose ClickListener that calls this:

    Code (Text):
    2. // ...Store Widget Configuration...
    4. // Force an update  (Pretty much verbatim from the documentation)
    5. Context context = getApplicationContext();
    6. RemoteViews views = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.widget);
    7. AppWidgetManager.getInstance(context).updateAppWidget(widget_id, views);
    9. // Return the expected result
    10. Intent result = new Intent();
    11. result.putExtra(AppWidgetManager.EXTRA_APPWIDGET_ID, widget_id);
    12. setResult(RESULT_OK, result);
    14. finish();
    The widget class gets all of the calls I'd expect except the forced update.

    Any ideas on why this doesn't work? More details are in the posting at SO.
