Is it possible to "mask" an animation (i.e., animate only within the bounds of another view)?

 I've got an animation that pushes an item in from the right side of
the screen. Right now, it animates so that you start to see the item
as soon as it enters the viewport; I want it to be invisible until
it's within the bounds of its view parent.

The parent has setClipChildren(true), but that doesn't seem to apply
to animations.

Acer has unveiled an Aspire netbook that dual boots Google Android and
Windows 7.

vice president of Acer at the launch event in London. he et[in
netbook] means the mobile internet, and [introducing] Android into the
netbook category is one of the ways we want to explain this to the
users, what mobile internet means.

Explaining the company's decision to go with Android, Wong explained,
"user demand is not there for [other versions of] Linux [... but] we
never give up. We adjust. We introduce Android with the Windows OS,

So why Windows?  lot of the time people are using netbook for their

Wong went on to predict a bright future for laptop and desktop users
alike. attery life is not satisfactory yet that still evolves as
the time goes. And multi-touch and 3D are very new.

f you remember the mouse had a rolling ball and now we have a
sensor, the same thing will happen with multi-touch. Not only in
entertainment, beyond that in productivity. On the commercial side
there are a lot of functions to come in the next few years.
This ties in with Acer new multi-touch displays, which will allow
people who upgrade their PCs to Windows 7 to take advantage of the
operating system touchscreen features.

2. Focus between views and lists issue/problem with Donut

Hi everyone,

I think I've found a bug with Donut. If I 5-way nav and change focus
between my listview (on top) and a button (below the list) then nav
back the focus jumps to the top of the visible list. It's skipping all
the items closer to the button.

It's worse if I go from a button (on top) to a list (below) where it
scrolls the list, like a setSelection call, and jumps to the 7th
element in the list. In cupcake it would go to the closest item in the
list that most recently lost focus.

Is this a newly designed behavior? Should I file a bug? Or does anyone
have any workarounds? I've used onKeyDown in the past to force the
focus view sequence between views.
