Create a simple Layout

Hi,

I'm newbie in Android and I can't create a simple LinearLayout. I have the following code in several files:

Principal.xml



strings.xml



LayoutActivity.java



Errors are in the last file, when I try to change the main activity's name. I have errors in lines setContentView and getMenuInflater. The error is:

principal cannot be resolved or is not a field.

I save principal.xml file in res/layout and string.xml in res/values folder. LayoutActivity.java is in src/example.interfaces folder.

How can I fix this error?

I'm working with Eclipse and API Level 16.

Thanks.

why you changing the activity name? it won't compile until you fix the the same name for your file.

Java Rules:
The filename must match exactly the name of your class.
