Notes: 02. Launch Threads & Post to the Main Thread

The student materials have been reviewed and are updated as of SEPTEMBER 2022. The image desplayed for the first project(and therefore its url) has changed. Don’t worry, the code stays the same :]

Heads up... You've reached locked video content where the transcript will be shown as obfuscated text.

This course has a few sample projects you’ll use to learn about background processing in Android.

val imageUrl = URL("")
val connection = imageUrl.openConnection() as HttpURLConnection
connection.doInput = true

val inputStream = connection.inputStream
val bitmap = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(inputStream)

Thread(Runnable {

runOnUiThread { ... }
