Use Handler for Android Timer

//run Runnable every 100ms

private Handler handler = new Handler();
handler.postDelayed(runnable, 100);

private Runnable runnable = new Runnable() {
   public void run() {
      /* do what you need to do */
      /* and here comes the "trick" */
      handler.postDelayed(this, 100);

Android Timer Java

Android handle Timer

Well, after programming a while for Android I got in touch with some things that are different from usual Java. I already mentioned that before, when I decided to start writing about my experiences with Android: Android & Memory (Leaks) ;) This time I’d like to write a bit about Timer and TimerTask and why you shouldn’t use them… While coding for a project I noticed that updating the gui out of a TimerTask didn’t work everytime and specially didn’t work good. Actually it basically never worked and at first I just couldn’t figure what was going on. I put some debugging stuff in the timers and everything seemed to be fine, as the debug messages appeared in the Log. Still: the gui wasn’t affected at all :oogle: So I started with some research and found a lot of people with same effects but just few answers (kind of get used to that ^^). So after some time I found an article on Android Developers: Updating the UI from a Timer. The author is describing a kind of similar problem to mine but still not the same. Anyway, he’s also talking about “The Android way” which basically says: Timer(Tasks) are bad! Do it the Android way: Use a Handler :) Interesting idea so I gave it a try and now it works perfectly .
