Need to see the AndroidManifest.XML , to see whats going on. I dont think it is necessarily related to your TextView ( there is nothing inherently wrong with what you posted above).

thanks william parrish,

found out that it was the Acitivity name it had 2 capitals which was creating that error . Thanks for responding . Appreciate your time.
