Switching from SurfaceView to a regular view

Postby ameetnsharma » Thu Dec 17, 2009 11:33 pm

The game starts out with a normal view created from an xml file... it's a menu screen... then clicking on a button starts up a SurfaceView for the main gameplay... when I die in the game, I'd like to set up the normal view again...

here's how I'm trying to do it:

if(gameDeath) {
_panel.surfaceDestroyed(_surfaceHolder);
setContentView(menuLayout);
}

This is inside the run method of the thread that's working with the SurfaceView...

but nothing happens... it stays stuck on the SurfaceView...

I'm calling surfaceDestroyed, because I assume that's the correct way to stop the thread...

Appreciate any help. Thanks.
