Refresh activity/view on press back button

I´m fixing an Android App developed by other person. We get data from web services after validate user´s login.

This data we get from web services is changed by user and update naturally but when y press back button from android app is not updated this data.

This is my onBackPressed method

@Override public void onBackPressed() { Utility.hideProgress(); super.onBackPressed(); }

I´m actually learning develop on Android.

Thanks for your help!

I don't quite understand what the back button is supposed to do in your app. The back button is used as navigation to take the user to the previous screen. If you mean the data is not saved when you press the back button, then you should look into ways of persisting that data. See the documentation here.

Hope that helps :)
