App name

Running from emulator or my phone, the name in the application list is "MainActivity" instead of what I defined as the app_name. [From my phone it does use app_name in the Manage Apps list]

AndroidManifest.xml
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="self.mfs.crystalballbutton"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0" >

    <uses-sdk
        android:minSdkVersion="7"
        android:targetSdkVersion="15" />

    <application
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
        <activity
            android:name="self.mfs.crystalballbutton.CrystalBallButton"
            android:label="@string/title_activity_main" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>

</manifest>

I think I figured it out. under activity above, it has the line: android:label="@string/title_activity_main"

title_activity_main is defined as "MainActivity". I don't understand why. Somehow when I changed the definition of that string it messed everything up - probably a coincidence but it's frustrating.

Thanks for posting how you fixed it :) I appreciate it!!

Since I'm just playing with the treehouse code, to fix my bigger errors, I just deleted the project and re-imported it from treehouse. Thanks for the project downloads. I'd be lost without them.

My eventual fix was to delete the line: android:label="@string/title_activity_main"
