Java Question

Using Butter Knife in Custom BaseAdapter SubClass Results in "Unable to inject views" error

I'm attempting to use Butter Knife to simplify creation of a custom BaseAdapter class. I'm following the example here: http://jakewharton.github.io/butterknife/ under the "Another use is simplifying the view holder pattern inside of a list adapter." section. Unfortunately, I am getting an "Unable to inject views" error each time the ViewHolder is created for each item in the list.

Here is my code:

public class ButterknifeCustomBaseAdapter extends BaseAdapter{
@Override
public int getCount() {
return arrayListNames.size();
}

@Override
public Name getItem(int iPosition) {
return arrayListNames.get(iPosition);
}

@Override
public long getItemId(int iID) {
return 0;
}

LayoutInflater inflater;
ArrayList<Name> arrayListNames = new ArrayList<Name>();
static Context context;
Activity activity;

public ButterknifeCustomBaseAdapter(Context context, ArrayList<Name> names, Activity activity) {
arrayListNames = names;
this.context = context;
inflater = LayoutInflater.from(this.context);
}



static class ViewHolder implements View.OnClickListener {
@InjectView(R.id.textViewFullName) TextView textViewFullName;
@InjectView(R.id.imageButtonDeleteName) TextView imageButtonDeleteName;
@OnClick(R.id.imageButtonDeleteName)
public void onClick(View view) {
((NameActivity)context).DeleteUser((Name)view.getTag());
}

public ViewHolder(View view) {
ButterKnife.inject(this, view);
}
}

@Override public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
ViewHolder viewHolder;

if (convertView != null) {
viewHolder = (ViewHolder) convertView.getTag();
} else {
convertView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.item_name, parent, false);
viewHolder = new ViewHolder(convertView);
convertView.setTag(viewHolder);
}

viewHolder.textViewFullName.setText(((Name)getItem(position)).GetFullName());
L.l("ArrayAdapterName", ((Name)getItem(position)).GetID() + " inserted in list | position = " + position);
viewHolder.imageButtonDeleteName.setTag((Name)getItem(position));
return convertView;
}


}

The error happens at the "ButterKnife.Inject(this, view);" line. It also happens each time the view holder is created for each item I am putting in the list. Does anybody know how to make this work the way it should?

In reply to Jake Wharton's comment
First, let me say thank you for developing this tool. It has made android development much more enjoyable than it was when I first started.

Here is the complete stacktrace:

Answer

Check if your @InjectViews has correct type. I've used ImageView instead of LinearLayout. That might be your problem too.

Update:

Make sure you are not using ButterKnife's @OnItemClick(R.id.non_list_view) with a non ListView. I was using it for a android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView which was causing following exception:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to inject views for MyFragment{... id=.... android:switcher:...}
