in my activity_quiz.xml document I need to add: “android:id=”@+id/false_button"" to get an ID for the button in the R.java file.
whereas in strings.xml I only typed in “Constantinople is the largest city in Turkey.” and then question_text ID appeared in R.java.
So in the second case I didnt have to type +id anywhere in order for the ID to appear in R.java, why is that? Does it have to do with the root in strings.xml? The root in strings.xml is . So maybe all the text inside that root goes directly to R.java.
Another very importat thing is that I think we should have one thread where people can ask these more general programming questions. So one doesnt have to start a new thread each time a question appears.
