I have searched Google and several sites for an already existent answer to this question and have done so to no avail. I've applied Alpha Animations before to TextViews, like so:
TextView textview = (TextView) findViewById(;
        Typeface x = Typeface.createFromAsset(getAssets(), "x.ttf");  
        AlphaAnimation animation = new AlphaAnimation( 1.0f , 0.0f );
However, I've no idea how to apply this sort of animation to the hint of an EditText View. Obviously, applying the animation to the EditText View itself animates the entire View, rather than just the hint. Does anyone have a solution?

Any help is very much appreciated! -ZS
