 i all, I've seen this question asked many times but none of the
answers really made sense in what I'm doing... I have an android game
(see source at Google source control:
http://code.google.com/p/bestcardgameever-android/source/browse/#svn/trunk/bestcardgameever-android/Branches/Yaniv%20For%20Android)
It's a card game, and I've used a method that redraws each hand every
round - that might be wasteful but I couldn't think of a better way to
do it. Here is the code for the redrawHand method:

private void redrawHand(Hand hand) {
ImageView[] cardView = hand.getCardsViews();
View container = hand.getContainer();
for (int i = 0; i < GameData.YANIV_NUM_CARDS; i++) {
PlayingCard card = hand.getCardByLocation(i);
if (card != null) {
// Show Card
cardView[i].setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
int resId;
if (hand.shouldCardsBeShown()) {
resId = card.getImageResourceId();
} else {
resId = R.drawable.back;
}
cardView[i].setImageResource(resId);
if (hand.isHumanPlayer()) {
// when selected, move up 15 pixels
boolean isSelected = hand.isCardSelected(i);
((LinearLayout.LayoutParams)
cardView[i].getLayoutParams()).bottomMargin = isSelected? 15 : 0;
} } else {
cardView[i].setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE); } } // Set player name
hand.getHandLabelView().setText(hand.getHandLabel());
container.requestLayout(); }

After installing ACRA (http://code.google.com/p/acra/wiki/ACRAHowTo) I
have started getting crash reports from devices saying the following:
