Error inflating class ImageView - android.view.InflateException: Binary XML file line #10: Error inflating class ImageView

I'm designing an app that has a xml file for the list items (list_item.xml),
and an adapter for the listView (NewsAdapter.java).

My app encounters this error when running:

My list_item file has an ImageView:

<ImageView
android:id="@+id/thumbnail"
android:layout_width="40dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:baseline="@id/title"
app:srcCompat="@android:drawable/ic_lock_lock"
tools:ignore="NotSibling" />


When I delete ImageView from the list_item.xml, The app runs well!

What should I do?!

NewsAdapter.java:

public class NewsAdapter extends ArrayAdapter {
Context context;
List<News> newsList;

public NewsAdapter(@NonNull Context context, @LayoutRes int resource, @NonNull List objects) {
super(context, resource, objects);
this.context = context;
this.newsList = objects;
}

@NonNull
@Override
public View getView(int position, @Nullable View convertView, @NonNull ViewGroup parent) {
News current_news = (News) getItem(position);
View list_view = convertView;
if(list_view == null) {
list_view = LayoutInflater.from(context).inflate(R.layout.list_item, parent, false);
}

TextView title = list_view.findViewById(R.id.title);
TextView publicationDate = list_view.findViewById(R.id.publicationDate);
TextView publication = list_view.findViewById(R.id.publication);

title.setText(current_news.getTitle());
publicationDate.setText(current_news.getPublication_date());
publication.setText(current_news.getPublication());

return list_view;
}


}

list_item.xml:

<ImageView
android:id="@+id/thumbnail"
android:layout_width="40dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:baseline="@id/title"
app:srcCompat="@android:drawable/ic_lock_lock"
tools:ignore="NotSibling" />

<RelativeLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginLeft="16dp">

<TextView
android:id="@+id/title"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
android:ellipsize="end"
android:maxLines="3"
tools:text="Is technology delivering in schools? Our panel debates" />

<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_below="@+id/title"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
android:orientation="horizontal">

<TextView

<TextView

Answer Source

As you see in last lines of error:

Caused by: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Can't convert to dimension: type=0x12

seems you entered something that is not a dimension where you must. And as documentation of attribute android:baseline:

The offset of the baseline within this view. May be a dimension value, which is a floating point number appended with a unit such as "14.5sp". Available units are: px (pixels), dp (density-independent pixels), sp (scaled pixels based on preferred font size), in (inches), and mm (millimeters).

But you used a string for value of baseline.
