1. Handling long process after clicking menu item from the menu

Hi all,
  Upon the selection of a menu item from the menu, I wrote some code
to open a dialog using onCreateDialog of the activity. Each time a
dialog is opened, new data downloaded has to be shown on dialog, which
is pausing the application for 2 to 3 seconds. And the menu item
becomes unresponsive.

I tried using AsyncTask, but because of the following code, in

protected Dialog onCreateDialog(int id) {

                Dialog dialog = null;

                switch (id) {

                    case DIALOG_WITH_DOWNLOADED_DATA:

                         DataDialog dataDialog = new DataDialog(this);
                         dialog = dataDialog.getDialog();


Even though, I extend AsyncTask to DataDialog class, I am not able to
return data because, onPostExecute() method returns void.

Please help.
