an this is the layout of my Mainactivity :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:id="@+id/container"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent">

<android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout
style="@style/HeaderBar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content">

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
android:id="@+id/toolbar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="?actionBarSize"
android:theme="@style/ActionBarThemeOverlay"
app:popupTheme="@style/ActionBarPopupThemeOverlay"
app:titleTextAppearance="@style/ActionBar.TitleText"/>

<android.support.design.widget.TabLayout
android:id="@+id/sliding_tabs"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
app:tabSelectedTextColor="@color/tabSelectedTextColor"
app:tabTextColor="@color/tabTextColor"
app:tabIndicatorColor="@color/tabIndicatorColor"
app:tabGravity="fill"
app:tabMode="fixed"/>

</android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout>

<android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
android:id="@+id/view_pager"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior" />

<android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton
android:id="@+id/fab_add"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_margin="@dimen/fab_margin"
android:src="@drawable/fab_ic_add"
app:backgroundTint="@color/fab_normal"
app:layout_anchor="@+id/container"
app:layout_anchorGravity="bottom|right|end"
app:elevation="4dp"/>

<ImageView
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:src="@drawable/background_title"
android:layout_gravity="bottom|center"
android:layout_marginBottom="6dp"/>

</android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout>


and this is my spash screen code:

public class SplashscreenActivity extends Activity {
/** Splash screen duration time in milliseconds */
private static final int DELAY = 1000;
@Override
protected void onCreate(final Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_splashscreen);

// Jump to MainActivity after DELAY milliseconds
new Handler().postDelayed(new Runnable() {
@Override
public void run() {
final Intent intent = new Intent(SplashscreenActivity.this, MainActivity.class);
intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_ANIMATION);
intent.putExtra(MainActivity.OPENED_FROM_LAUNCHER, true);
startActivity(intent);
finish();
}
}, DELAY);
}

@Override
public void onBackPressed() {
// do nothing. Protect from exiting the application when splash screen is shown
}

}


and this is layout of my splash screen :

<merge xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
tools:context=".SplashscreenActivity" >

<ImageView
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_gravity="center"
android:layout_marginBottom="70dp"
android:scaleType="center"
android:src="@drawable/nordic_logo" />

<ImageView
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:src="@drawable/background_title"
android:layout_gravity="bottom|center"
android:layout_marginBottom="6dp"/>




can anyone tell me how to solve this issue?

Answer

This started to happened in support design library v.23.2.0

compile 'com.android.support:design:23.2.0'

I know this started with v23.2.0 because my app was working fine before (v.23.1.2) and started to present same failure after update.

Error is simple:

One of your views is anchored to its parent Coordinator Layout. However, starting at v.23.2.0, this is no longer allowed.

I think the error is in your FAB:

<android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton
    android:id="@+id/fab_add"
    ...
    app:layout_anchor="@+id/container" 
    ... />

I believe that id/container is a parent CoordinatorLayout

Fixing

Right way is change the layout_anchor and use another view as anchor (parent Layout or any other view which is fixed to bottom of the screen).
