Android Button Syntax question

Hello all, I had a question about some syntax i encountered in the Crystal Ball project for Android. In the first few videos you showed us how to act on a button touch event with an setOnClickListener method. My question is: how can you have an entirely new method and method definition in the parameter for the setOnClickListener method and how does the segment, "new View.onClickListener();" instantiate an object even though it doesn't use a constructor? Thank you!
