Hi,

I am having trouble accessing String resources from a Strings.xml in a res/values/ directory of a Library I am using in my application.
Some of the strings can be accessed at runtime but most cannot.

The log cat warning:



The Strings.xml:




Have done some searching and can't get the meaning of the warning.
There are no conflicting resources in the reference applications string.xml.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Is the translation_description a valid parameter for a String resource? I have never seen it and it is not in the documentation as far as I can see.

Same.
The library was written some time back with a minSdk 3 (API 1.5 Cupcake).
The reference project requires a minSDK 9 (2.3.2 GingerBread) because of a GooglePlayServices.jar hence the manifest of project and library are set minSDK 9.
Ill try remove the translation attribute and see.....

Removing the translation attribute made no diff.
Interestingly none of the missing resource integer:

String resource ID #0x7f0a00c0


are in ether the R file of the Refernence project or the R file of the library project....so how can the resources be allocated a unique id and not be present in the R file?

Try doing a clean build (make sure to get rid of the gen and bin directories). Sometimes the build system gets confused if you add or remove resource IDs.
