TextView animation - fade in, wait, fade out

I am making a picture gallery app. I current have a imageview with a text view at the bottom. Currently it is just semitransparent. I want to make it fade in, wait 3 second, then fade out 90%. Bringing focus to it or loading a new pic will make it repeat the cycle. I have read thru a dozen pages and have tried a few things, no success. All I get is a fade in and instant fade out

Answer

You can use an extra animation object (which doesn't modify its alpha) to prevent the instant fade out, set animationListener for your fade-in effect and start the extra animation object in the on animationEnd of the fade-in, then you start fade-out on animation end of the extra animation object, try the link below, it'll help..
