What is thread in java ?

This example shows how a thread get activated on every interval of time. Here an array of string is given which is used to display a text change for every activated thread calls.

public class Threadexample extends Activity {

  protected int splashTime = 3000;
     TextView tv1;
     String[] name = {"Angel","Mark","Coding","Playground","For","All","Coderz"};
     int timer =0;
     /** Called when the activity is first created. */
     @Override
     public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
         super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
         setContentView(R.layout.activity_threadexample);
         tv1 = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView1);
         Thread th=new Thread(){
  
             @Override
             public void run(){
                 try  
                 {
                     for (timer = 0; timer < 7; timer++)
                     {
                         int waited = 0;
                         while(waited < splashTime)
                         {
                             Thread.sleep(100);
                             runOnUiThread(new Runnable() { 
                                 public void run() {
                                     try {
                                         tv1.setText(name[timer]);
                                     }
                                     catch(Exception e) 
                                     {
                                         e.printStackTrace();
                                     } 
                                 }
                             });
                             waited += 100;
                         }
                     }
                 }catch (InterruptedException e) {
                 }
  
             }
         };
         th.start();
     }

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(R.id.textview); startanimation=(Button) findViewById(R.id.button1); fadeIn = new AlphaAnimation(0.0f , 1.0f ) ; fadeIn.setDuration(1200); fadeIn.setFillAfter(true); fadeOut = new AlphaAnimation(1.0f , 0.0f); fadeOut.setDurati…
