My Eclipse environment doesn't have a fragment_main layout option. I only have activity_main. Does anyone know why this is or how to fix it?

1 Answer

This is usually because of the options that you are choosing in the new project wizard. If you are running ADT version 22.x or higher you will have the option to create a fragment based on the Activity Type. Blank activity and Master/Detail Flow Activity will allow for the option to create a fragment_main layout option. But Empty and Fullscreen Activities do not give you that option in the wizard.
