2. Help with Gallery Widget

Hello everyone,

I have 2 problems
- I want to scroll gallery to a specific position by calling a
function, but at the same time to see the animation of scrolling. I
have tried the following but they don't seem to do the animation
(although the ):
# public void setSelection(int position, boolean animate) <- it seems
like not using the second parameter
# public void setSelection(int position)
both of the above methods are inherited from android.widget.AbsSpinner

- How can i make Gallery widget circular, so when i scroll to the end
to continue from the beginning. Actually i don't want it to have an
end. Is there any way to do that?

Thanks in advance for your time,
