So I made this new Java Class called splash which will be used to display a background image in my app . I wrote a onCreate method and then added this line so the image can be referenced and be placed in the "background" .



the entire code in the Splash class:



The Error that complains on "splash" in setContentView

splash cannot be resolved or is not a field


I dont know if something has to be created in the R.Java file , from what I know its a no-no to touch that ...

any idea?

Thanks everyone

Indeed, never mess with the R class. It sounds as if you don't have the layout file that the code is trying to load; it should be called res/layout/splash.xml - that's what R.layout.splash does. Did you create that file?
