Broadcast decision

A decision block that sends an app (ordered) broadcast and then await a result.

The fiber will pause until the broadcast has been sent, and the receiver has updated the result. If you don’t want the fiber to pause, use the Broadcast send block instead.

If the receiver class and/or package is set and doesn’t evaluate to null a specific app receiver will be targeted for the broadcast.

What data and actions a broadcast receiver support varies. Search for public documentation, or look at the app manifest for clues.

When including a file URI either as data URI or "android.intent.extra.STREAM" extra, ensure to enable the appropriate Grant flags otherwise it may be inaccessible to the app.
