Java Class:private JSONObject jObject;
        private String jString = "{\"itemmenu\":    {" +
                "\"itemid\": \"file\"," +
                " \"itemvalue\": \"File\"," +
                " \"itemarray\": { \"menuitem\": " +
                "[ " + "{\"value\": \"New\"  , " + 
                "\"onclick\": \"CreateNewDoc()\"}, " +
                " {\"value\": \"Open\"," + 
                " \"onclick\":" + " \"OpenDoc()\"}," +
                "{\"value\": \"Close\"," +
                " \"onclick\": \"CloseDoc()\"}" +
                "]}" +
                "}" +

 public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        try {
        catch (Exception e)
            } }
     private void parse() throws Exception {

//Create json object and use it to retrieve the data in it
      jObject = new JSONObject(jString);
      JSONObject menuObject = jObject.getJSONObject("itemmenu");
      String attributeId = menuObject.getString("itemid");
      System.out.println("THE ATTRIBUTE ID   IS.....1....."+attributeId);
      String attributeValue = menuObject.getString("itemvalue");
      System.out.println("THE ATTRIBUTE ID  IS.....2....."+attributeValue);
      JSONObject popupObject = menuObject.getJSONObject("itemarray");
      JSONArray menuitemArray =  popupObject.getJSONArray("menuitem");
      for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
         System.out.println("THE ATTRIBUTE ID IS.....3....."+menuitemArray.getJSONObject(i)
         System.out.println("THE ATTRIBUTE ID IS.....4....."+menuitemArray.getJSONObject(i)
            } } }

TextView Animation or Alpha animation (FadeIn , FadeOut) in ANDROID

An Alpha Animation is animation that controls the alpha level of an object, i.e. fading it in and out. In Android, you can apply that fading effect to almost anything, from simple text, to images, buttons, check boxes, etc…

This can be done both from xml and from java class.

Here I will explain a simple way to give a FadeIn and FadeOut for a textview on button click.. public class Textviewanimation extends Activity { Animation fadeIn,fadeOut; TextView tv; Button startanimation; Boolean fadeflag=true; @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_textviewanimation); tv=(TextView) findViewById(; startanimation=(Button) findViewById(; fadeIn = new AlphaAnimation(0.0f , 1.0f ) ; fadeIn.setDuration(1200); fadeIn.setFillAfter(true); fadeOut = new AlphaAnimation(1.0f , 0.0f); fadeOut.setDurati…
