Problem with XML layout


I keep having a problem with fragment_crime.xml. In trying to figure out what’s wrong, I copied the code directly from the nerd ranch downloaded code xml file, but I still have the error.

The code shows no error, but when I switch to graphical layout it shows nothing, and the bottom has a yellow box with:
Exception raised during rendering: java.lang.System.arraycopy…
Exception details are logged in Window > Show View > Error Log

I can’t find ‘error log’ in the show view menu.

I triple checked every line of code. I also tried re-creating the project and it still didn’t fix it.

Any ideas?

Edit: when I remove the EditText widget from the layout file, the error disappears. I’ve tried removing different parts of the EditText, such as id, hint, and layout but the error remains.

Edit 2: I should note that the app runs without problem. Just can’t view the layout in the graphical layout.


Here are some screen shots of the XML code and graphical layout. I’m using the Eclipse Juno from the Android developers download page.


Which API level are you targeting? If it’s Android Wear, then EditText is not supported and you’ll receive this error. Have a look at this Stackoverflow article:
