Hey, everyone.
I'm trying to make a basic tycoon game for Android
and I'm trying to increment the value of text-views every 5 seconds with a timer,
But the textview doesn't update.
Here's my code so far:
public class Town extends Activity implements OnClickListener {
	Timer timer;
	TimerTask task;
	TextView goldTV;
	TextView woodTV;
	TextView foodTV;
	TextView stoneTV;
	TextView cashTV;
	int gold = 20;
	int wood = 20;
	int food = 20;
	int stone = 20;
	int cash = 200;
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		goldTV = (TextView) findViewById(;
		woodTV = (TextView) findViewById(;
		foodTV = (TextView) findViewById(;
		stoneTV = (TextView) findViewById(;
		cashTV = (TextView) findViewById(;
		timer = new Timer();
		task = new TimerTask() {
			public void run() {
				try {
				catch (InterruptedException e){
	public void onClick(View arg0) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub

use handler , thread is good but for android handler is best
and if you are making more process in background then use asynch task
