java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'int android.view.View.getImportantForAccessibility()' on a null object reference

I'm trying to put together a shopping list app , based on input fields ,

ArrayList
, and
ListView
. The app will be based on
Fragments
. However, I have encountered a problem and I do not know how to solve it.

I looked around on both Google and StackOverflow have found some information . However , I have not got it to work. Now hope that I can get help with my code .

I'm relatively inexperienced in Android development .

Thanks in advance

Input input = new Input();

@Override

super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

replaceFragment(R.id.container, input);
}


public void replaceFragment(int container, Fragment fragment){
FM = getFragmentManager();
FT = FM.beginTransaction();

FT.replace(container, fragment);
FT.commit();
}

@Override

// Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
return true;
}

// Handle action bar item clicks here. The action bar will
// automatically handle clicks on the Home/Up button, so long
// as you specify a parent activity in AndroidManifest.xml.

Answer

In your public View getView method change return null; to return convertView;.
