Android - activity_main cannot be resolved or is not a field

Previous people have had the same error message, but the solution has always been to remove or modify some import "android.R". I have
no such import so I'm really lost

I'm trying to get a sample android google maps program running.

I'm following this tutorial. http://www.vogella.com/articles/AndroidGoogleMaps/article.html

However, eclipse gives me this error when I paste over the code: "activity_main cannot be resolved or is not a field"

This happens in MainActivity in this snippet of code

public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {


getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);
return true;}

The specific error is in the "R.menu.activity_main" part.

Here is my activity_main.xml file.

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
tools:context=".MainActivity" >

<fragment
android:id="@+id/map"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
class="com.google.android.gms.maps.MapFragment" />
</RelativeLayout>

And here is my full MainActivity.java class

package com.example.mapssample;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;

import com.google.android.gms.maps.CameraUpdateFactory;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.GoogleMap;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.MapFragment;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.BitmapDescriptorFactory;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.LatLng;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.Marker;
import com.google.android.gms.maps.model.MarkerOptions;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {


static final LatLng HAMBURG = new LatLng(53.558, 9.927);
static final LatLng KIEL = new LatLng(53.551, 9.993);
private GoogleMap map;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
map = ((MapFragment) getFragmentManager().findFragmentById(R.id.map))
.getMap();
Marker hamburg = map.addMarker(new MarkerOptions().position(HAMBURG)
.title("Hamburg"));
Marker kiel = map.addMarker(new MarkerOptions()
.position(KIEL)
.title("Kiel")
.snippet("Kiel is cool")
.icon(BitmapDescriptorFactory
.fromResource(R.drawable.ic_launcher)));

// Move the camera instantly to hamburg with a zoom of 15.

map.moveCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngZoom(HAMBURG, 15));

// Zoom in, animating the camera.


map.animateCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.zoomTo(10), 2000, null);
}

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);
return true;
}

Thank you in advance for all your help. Sorry for some wonky indenting in my code, I kept giving four extra spaces to make it appear as
code and it got a little weird.

New, error log.

Thank you so much, do you have any idea what this means?

1) Where does your layout file exist? is it under layout folder then shouldn't it be

java - Android - activity_main cannot be resolved or is not a field - Stac... http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16995402/android-activity-main-can...

R.layout.activity_main

2) You still have to import your projects R file

com.example.mapssample.R;

3) R file is automatically generated if there's no error in your code. Sometimes when you get
can't resolve R file error means you have problem somewhere else in the project. Try clean
project. It might help.

4) You don't really need menu for testing this project. Also the activity_main file you showed is
already included in the project and that's in layout folder. Just comment the menu part and see.

I tried cleaning, let me look into the other two. – Ian Jun 8 '13 at 2:40

It's in the default location. The layout folder. You're right, it should be layout. – Ian Jun 8 '13 at 2:42

1 if following line is fine then your R is fine don't worry about that. setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
Just comment following function onCreateOptionsMenu – Sharj Jun 8 '13 at 2:44

1 you have to figure out by looking at the error in your logcat what went wrong. – Sharj Jun 8 '13 at 2:47

1 many other people have faced this problem. try this stackoverflow.com/questions/15894143/… – Sharj Jun 8

Your Code imported android.R so first remove this line import android.R;

so remove this line & press cntrl+shift+o (to import necessary packages)..

I have three ways that help me to solve this problem, may be it works for you.

1. first clean than try to import your project like this: import
com.example.mapssample.R;

2. right click on project go to properties--> android --> select target.


3. clean

What weird symbol are you referring to? – Ian Jun 8 '13 at 2:41

I am not sure if this will solve your problem, but I have always declared fragment's type in xml
with the "name" attribute, not the "class" attribute. Try making your fragment

<fragment
android:id="@+id/map"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:name="com.google.android.gms.maps.MapFragment" />

Heh.. similar prob.. turns out somewhere along the line I had renamed the map fragment ID in
the XML layout file.. Was looking for a fragment ID that did not exists.. hope it helps someone
else.

I'm following the Deitel Android, How to program-book, and when I tried building my first own
application I experienced similar problems. What I did:

In windows environment variables: HOME=%USERPROFILE% JAVA_HOME=\Program


Files\Java\jre7\bin (or what/where you have it)

In the code: Mainactivity.java: Added Import com.deitel.welcome.R (that is package.R)


Changed the call R.layout.activity_main to R.layout.main (check the generated R.java file)

Working!

this is a common problem in eclipse. so 90% it is the problem with R.java file. so do following
steps it will work for shore

1.Remove your import android.R

2.Ctrl+Shift+O.

3.clean the project
