I am a beginner in android development,I am using moondroid coverflow(external library) to create a coverflow,but i dont get why i am getting a null poiner exception when using it in xml
Here is my xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"

xmlns:coverflow="http://schemas.android.com/tools">
<it.moondroid.coverflow.components.ui.containers.FeatureCoverFlow
android:id="@+id/coverflow"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
coverflow:coverHeight="@dimen/cover_height"
coverflow:coverWidth="@dimen/cover_width"
coverflow:maxScaleFactor="1.5"
coverflow:reflectionGap="0px"
coverflow:rotationThreshold="0.5"
coverflow:scalingThreshold="0.5"
>
</it.moondroid.coverflow.components.ui.containers.FeatureCoverFlow>

Answer

Just take a look at the sample example it is set like this

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:coverflow="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:background="@android:color/darker_gray"
tools:context="it.moondroid.carousellayoutdemo.CoverFlowActivity">


<it.moondroid.coverflow.components.ui.containers.FeatureCoverFlow
    android:id="@+id/coverflow"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    coverflow:coverHeight="@dimen/cover_height"
    coverflow:coverWidth="@dimen/cover_width"
    coverflow:maxScaleFactor="1.5"
    coverflow:reflectionGap="0px"
    coverflow:rotationThreshold="0.5"
    coverflow:scalingThreshold="0.5"
    coverflow:spacing="0.6" />

<TextSwitcher
    android:id="@+id/title"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:paddingBottom="16dp"
    android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true" />

</RelativeLayout>

and add some additional file like this Just take a look at the sample too
