I am new with java and if somebody can help me with this i really appreciate. My question is how or when can i insert a code to call or launch another activity after the timer lapsed.

protected static final Thread This = null;
 
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle hard) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    super.onCreate(hard);
 
    requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE);
    getWindow().setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN,
    WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN);
 
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    Thread timer = new Thread(){
        public void run(){
            try{
                Thread.sleep(5000);
 
            }catch(InterruptedException e){
                e.printStackTrace();
            }finally{
                Intent openStartingPoint = new Intent("--.---.---.------.MainActivity");
                startActivity(openStartingPoint);
            }
        }
    };
    timer.start();
 
}

Solution 1

it seems you are making splash screen ,
use handler for this and timer is not use for this puropse , if still want to use timer then ,

make sure you use something which makes timing , thred can never use for time ,

Another option is AlarmManager in which you can do like after 10 sec , you can pass another activiy...

check this links

you can also googling more ...

and lastly you can use this thread in asynch and pass intent in postExecuteMethod...
