GPS ON or OFF without Viewing Settings Page.

I've searched for GPS ON and OFF without passing intent for getting Settings page . Now,I got a solution for that .. To TurnOn, I used the snippets below,
String set = Settings.Secure.getString(getContentResolver(), Settings.Secure.LOCATION_PROVIDERS_ALLOWED);
if(!set.contains("gps")){ 
            final Intent gpsIntent = new Intent();
             gpsIntent .setClassName("com.android.settings", "com.android.settings.widget.SettingsAppWidgetProvider"); 
             gpsIntent.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_ALTERNATIVE);
             gpsIntent.setData(Uri.parse("3")); 
            sendBroadcast(gpsIntent);
}
and to TurnOFF,
String set1 = Settings.Secure.getString(getContentResolver(), Settings.Secure.LOCATION_PROVIDERS_ALLOWED);
if(set1.contains("gps"))
         {
         final Intent  gpsIntent1= new Intent();
          gpsIntent1.setClassName("com.android.settings", "com.android.settings.widget.SettingsAppWidgetProvider");
          gpsIntent1.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_ALTERNATIVE);
          gpsIntent1.setData(Uri.parse("3")); 
         sendBroadcast(gpsIntent1);
}
You can test by seeing the settings page after every On and Off To get Full Source Code Click Here
