[code challenge] Moving Work from the Main Thread to an AsyncTask

Hi everyone,

I am having an issue with the following code challenge: " Moving Work from the Main Thread to an AsyncTask".

I do not manage to pass the 3rd question: "execute your custom async task from inside the 'onCreate()' method".

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    //this is where I get stuck
    //CustomAsyncTask...? Not sure what to write here

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Ben, it's working now:

CustomAsyncTask cust_task = new CustomAsyncTask();
