Getting an error on: @+id/

It gives me a resource not found error, something like that everytime i want to i leave the id like that. "Validates

I have no clue what you are trying to ask (From next time also please share your code (or snippet) if you really want help).

Why would you not assign an id to a resource?

The correct way of assigning an id to a layout element is like this:

<!-- []  =  Optional --> 
        android:layout_height=["dimension" | "fill_parent" | "wrap_content"]
        android:layout_width=["dimension" | "fill_parent" | "wrap_content"]

By leaving an id as @+id/ you are essentially trying to give it no id which cannot be done. All you need to do is complete the id statement with @+id/someUniqueName.

thanks james, i had to uncheck some other things to get it right. But main thing was like that.
