Java Question

Unfortunately, (App Name) has stopped. Eclipse / Android

I'm new to eclipse and wanted to know how to keep this message

Unfortunately, (App Name) has stopped."


from showing every time I run my Test Application in my AVD. I'm trying to make a LineView Layout and Eclipse shows no mistakes. So how can I fix this and how can I find out what the problem is if Eclipse shows no problems?

Answer

Looking at your LogCat and your manifest, you can see that the name of your activity class is different from the name of the class that is presented inside the manifest file.

So, in order to fix the problem, change this line in your manifest

android:name="testing.android.application.three.MainActivityThreeActivity"

for

android:name="testing.android.application.three.MainActivityThree"

This may solve the problem!

Always keep in mind that the AndroidManifest file "governs" your application. Every service and activity you want to use or every permission you need for your application, you'll have to register it inside your manifest file and do it correctly, otherwise, you'll experience crashes like that.
