The Code


if (string.contains("value 1 here") || string.contains("value 2 here") || string.contains("value 3"))


Here is an example code for checking single value in a string, this code checks if the string “” contains “zid”. and if it contains it, it will show a toast, it will show another toast if it doesn’t. this is just an example.


String myvalue = "";
              if (myvalue.contains("zid")) {

                  Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "The string contains zid", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

              else {
                 Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "The string doesn't contains zid", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
