Hi, my Java fails me again

I need to pass some parameters from my MainActivity to an asynctask using a handler, so I can start and stop the process anytime.

The parameters (this, loginstatus, result) in the asynctask are used to display the results in the UI ( the TextViews in the XML).

Problem: ( see pic)




Following is my MainActivity that calls the asynctask:




And this is the Asynctask:

Hi there,

I haven't really used Android handler's before, but from what I have read handlers can be used to send messages to other objects and messages can hold data bundles. So maybe you could add your data to a bundle, add the bundle to the message, and then use the handler to send the message to the AsyncTask. It should work in theory, but having never used handlers I am not sure.
