I am currently working on an application that requires several "dangerous" permissions. So I tried adding "ask for permission" as required in Android Marshmallow(API Level 23), but couldn't find how to do it.

How can I ask for permission using new permission model in my app?

Open a Dialog using the code below:

                    new String[]{Manifest.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE},
Get the Activity result as below:

public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode,
                                       String permissions[], int[] grantResults) {
    switch (requestCode) {
        case 1: {

          // If request is cancelled, the result arrays are empty.
          if (grantResults.length > 0
                    && grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {

                // permission was granted, yay! Do the
                // contacts-related task you need to do.          
            } else {

                // permission denied, boo! Disable the
                // functionality that depends on this permission.
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Permission denied to read your External storage", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

        // other 'case' lines to check for other
        // permissions this app might request
