Android Question

Android app keeps crashing on emulator and device

I am executing a very basic task of opening another activity using a button. The code seems to be error-free but the app crashes without even showing the main activity. This happens on both the emulator as well as my device.
When the app has no function, i.e. when the app has just buttons which do nothing, the app works fine. But if I try to make them do anything(intent to open another activity, or to play with their visibility) the app crashes.
The logcat is as follows:

The .java file has the following block:

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
Button btn1 = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button);
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

btn1.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
startActivity(new Intent(MainActivity.this, Main2Activity.class));
}
});
}
}


The XML file is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:id="@+id/activity_main"

</RelativeLayout>


I am using Android Studio 2.2.2

Answer

after setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

call Button button = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button); issue was you didn't created reference for button.
