A timer thread and url fetch thread in same activity.

 I am having problems with a timer that should fetch http results from
the web every 5 minutes.
I having problems with two threads - often I cannot even turn them off
or keep the timer going without upsetting the apple cart.

Should I start using wait() and notify(), a separate service or
continue trying to get them to be friends with each other in the same
activity. At present its all very badly behaved and I feel as though I
am juggling with marbles.

Just saying you're using two threads is a red flag. What apple cart?

Use a handler to schedule a message to go off in 5 minutes. When that
message is delivered, use an AsyncTask to do the fetch and handle the
results when it completes.

No raw threads necessary.

2. Can't get animations working.

I am trying to create a menu that slides in when it is drawn. I
created an animation in res/anim called map_toolbar_in.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<translate xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

Then I have a linearLayout which I attempt to use it in:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/

When I run the program I get a bunch of errors, starting with:

04-05 18:17:05.287: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(4258): Caused by:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Unknown layout animation name: translate

Does anyone have any ideas?
