Android Android Lists and Adapters (2015) Standard ListViews Displaying List Data (or None At All)

Display List Data: onClick gets a fatal error, class not in manifest?

Got a strange error when I went back to try a list view again (was having trouble with CustomAdapter so switched to using this approach).

My app crashes when I click on click on the Daily Button. Logs says the "DailyActivity" class is not in the manifest (huh?). Didn't seem to have a problem when I built and Grundle found the class.

android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit activity class... {com.seattleshinebox.weatherapp/com.seattleshinebox.weatherapp.ui.TestList}; have you declared this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml?

Inside MainActivity I have: @OnClick (R.id.test_button) public void startTestActivity(View view) { Intent intent = new Intent(this,TestList.class); startActivity(intent); }

And in TestList I have: public class TestList extends ListActivity{

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    String[] day = {"Mon", "Tues", "Wed", "Thus"};
    ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, day);

Hi Sean,

In your project folder you should be able to find a file called "AndroidManifest.xml" Among other things you need to "list" all of your Activities. Could you post that file here?

Yeah I'm not sure how but it was completely missing from the AndroidManifest. I created the java file the usual way.

So thanks for the tip. I just added this back in and it works now:

            android:parentActivityName=".ui.MainActivity" >
                android:value="com.seattleshinebox.weatherapp.ui.MainActivity" />
