Android add custom animation to Toast

I need to create a custom animated toast message. Now i need to know if that is possible. I've created a toast with a custom view but I cannot figure out how can I add custom animation to the toast.

Here is the code I have so far.

private void showToast() {
LayoutInflater inflater = getLayoutInflater();

View layout = inflater.inflate(R.layout.custom_toast,
(ViewGroup) findViewById(R.id.custom_toast_layout_id));

// set a message
TextView text = (TextView) layout.findViewById(R.id.toast_text);
text.setText("Button is clicked!");

// Toast...
Toast toast = new Toast(getApplicationContext());
toast.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER_VERTICAL, 0, 0);
toast.setDuration(Toast.LENGTH_LONG);
toast.setView(layout);
toast.show();
}
});
}

It is not possible to do this with the stock Android Toast class. Stock style toasts (ones added to the WindowManager and not to a ViewGroup) are limited to four system animations and will not accept animations from your project. If you would like to use different system animations with stock type Android Toasts check out how I do it in my SuperToasts library. It may not be worth it to write such a class for one instance so I would recommend either using my library if you find it useful or writing a custom view class that resembles a toast. You can see how I do that in this class of the library.
