If you want to create handler , here is the code snippet that can help you out.
Step :-1 Create the object for Handler.
private Handler myHandler = new Handler();
Step :-2 Create the Runnable Thread.
private Runnable myRunnableThread = new Runnable()
public void run()
/*Here you can perform the task you want to play at the backgroubd*/
Log.d("MyMessage", "I am on thr running thread");
catch (Exception ex)
Step 3:-Now you can call the handler where you want to run the thread.
/*call postDelayed method of Handler that takes 2 argument "runnable thread" and
"milliseconds" after which you want to run the thread */
