Here's the situation: my app loads 1 MapView. Loading this view will take some time, of course. I want a ProgressDialog to be shown during this loading time. The proper way to this is by using an AsyncTask. However: creating a new MapView object inside of the doInBackground method is not allowed: it's not allowed to interact with the UI inside this method. Does anyone have a suggestion? Is there a way to do this? Could not find this through Google nor on this forum.
