I want to be able to call the following method after a specified delay. In objective c there was something like:

[self performSelector:@selector(DoSomething) withObject:nil afterDelay:5];

Is there an equivalent of this method in android with java? For example I need to be able to call a method after 5 seconds.

public void DoSomething() { //do something here }

In Kotlin try:


  //Do something after 5000ms

}, 5000)


And, In Java try:

final Handler handler = new Handler();

handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {


  public void run() {

    //Do something after 5000ms


}, 5000);
