Unable to update TextView on a scheduled-basis

 Hello everyone, I'm new to Android (but not Java), so bear with me.


I'm trying to create a stopwatch-type UI, where a digital timer is
displayed and incrementing every second.  I started off creating a
textview and attempted to update this textview (TextView.setText())
using either the TimerTask class to update the view in a timer as well
as updating the view in the same thread, using a Thread.sleep(1000).

In either case, the view does not get updated. Obviously this doesn't
seem to be the proper way to go about updating a text view.  Any
suggestions on the proper way to notify the textview?

Thanks
Chris

1. Clear TableLayout table

I wonder if anyone knows how I shall clear and update a table on a
screen.
I have a TableLayout with a few rows that I create dynamically. Then I
want to update that data with an update option from the Menu.
Do I have to create a new activity and recreate the table or is it
possible to clear it and add new rows in it
