Moving from one activity to another Activity in Android

I want to move from one activity to another (using virtual device). When I click on button to move, My emulator ones a dialog box showing

unfortunately SMS1 has stopped working
(SMS1 is my app name).

Can anybody help me in correcting my code?

MainActivity.java:

package com.example.sms1;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements OnClickListener
{

Button b1;
TextView tv1;
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
{
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
b1 = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);
tv1 = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView1);

b1.setOnClickListener(this);

}

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu)
{
// Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
return true;
}

@Override
public void onClick(View v)
{
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
Intent i = new Intent(getApplicationContext(),NextActivity.class);
startActivity(i);
setContentView(R.layout.avtivity_next);
}



}


Here is the NextActivity

package com.example.sms1;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class NextActivity extends Activity {

TextView tv1;
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.avtivity_next);
tv1 = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView1);
}


@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
// Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
return true;
}

}

Answer

You haven't defined NextActivity in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

Add these lines in android manifest after</activity> tag. It should work.

<activity
    android:name=".NextActivity" >
</activity>

final code will be

<application
    android:allowBackup="true"
    android:icon="@drawable/app_icon"
    android:label="@string/app_name" >
    <activity
        android:name=".MainActivity"
        android:label="Main Activity" >
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>
    <activity
        android:name=".NextActivity" >
    </activity>
</application>
