Android Question

App crashing due to nullpointer exception

I have been working on an application and required a one time screen so as to input some one time only variables. I get the user to input the roll no and in case it is greater than 101400000 I needed to make another

EditText
on the first screen only.
Then it moves to the main
Activity
which has a Navgation Slider.

The OneTime
Activity
to show the screen.

package com.example.thereaper.thaparexpress;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.ActionBarActivity;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class OneTime extends ActionBarActivity {
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_ot);
int counter=0;
if(counter==0) {
int roll = 0;
final Global global = (Global) getApplicationContext();
EditText rollNo = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.rollNo);
try {
roll = Integer.parseInt(rollNo.getText().toString());
} catch (NumberFormatException e) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Invalid roll number", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);
}
if (roll >= 10140000) {
rollNo.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
}
EditText group = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.groupNo);
global.setGroup(group.getText().toString());
global.setRoll_No(roll);
counter++;
}

Intent i = new Intent(this,Main.class);
startActivity(i);
}


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


}


The onetime xml file



<EditText
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:inputType="text|number"
android:hint="Roll Number"
android:ems="10"
android:id="@+id/rollNo"
android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
android:layout_marginTop="128dp" />

<EditText
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"

Answer

You're using 2 activities: Activity and ActionBarActivity. The latter is from a support package and requires a theme of AppCompat.

This means that Activity is using an AppCompat theme, and getActionBar() will return null.

Your options:

  1. Have Main extend ActionBarActivity and replace getActionBar to getSupportActionBar.

  2. Have both activities extend Activity and change your theme to something newer, e.g.: Holo:

    <style name="AppTheme" parent="android:Theme.Holo.Light.DarkActionBar">
    </style>
