Problem with ProgressDialog

Hi, Everyone:

I'm having some trouble displaying a ProgressDialog. Basically, I want
to show a progress "popup" when a user presses a button in my app.
Here's the code:

Code: Select all
OnClickListener updateButtonPressed = new OnClickListener(){
        // @Override
        public void onClick(View arg0) {
                //Run this on a new thread
                runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
                        public void run() {
                                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                                ProgressDialog pd = null;
                                pd =, "please wait", "updating",
true, false);
                                 run a bunch of code ...

The code runs fine, but the popup never appears. I'm using Eclipse as
my development environment, and it logs no errors. As far as I can
tell (and from some google searches), the ProgressDialog should work,
so I'm stumped. Any ideas?

That's probably because /* run a bunch of code */ should be in a separate thread.
