I'm struggling to find documentation for the TimerTask function on Android.
I need to run a thread at intervals using a TimerTask but have no idea how to go about this.
Any advice or examples would be greatly appreciated.
You use a
Timer, and that automatically creates a new Thread for you when you schedule a
TimerTask using any of the
Timer t = new Timer(); t.schedule(myTimerTask, 1000L);
This creates a Timer running
myTimerTask in a Thread belonging to that Timer once every second.
