java Course - Animation of Crystal Ball Problem

In the video Animating the Crystal Ball, at the 6.00 minute mark where Ben is setting the Image resource for the image view, he types a dot after typing "drawable" and intellisense gives him a list of the contents of his "drawable" folders from which he selects the "ball_animation" manifest. My code is the same as Ben's but I am not presented with the same list. Rather I am presented with a much shorter list which does not contain the ball_animation file. The list contains 3 items:

  1. ball01: int - R.drawable
  2. ic_laauncher: int - R.drawable
  3. class: Class <com.example.crystalBall.R.drawable> this

Anyone else seen this problem? Regards Alistair

Did you put all of those ballXX.png files and the ball_animation.xml file into your res/drawable-mdpi folder?

If the files are in there, try refreshing your project in the Package Explorer. Right click on your project name and click Refresh. Eclipse doesn't automatically refresh the files in your Package Explorer when you make changes to them outside of Eclipse. Once you've refreshed, open the res/drawable-mdpi folder in Eclipse's Package Explorer tab and make sure the files are in there.

Many thanks Ben. A refresh followed by a project>clean solved it. Thanks again. Kind regards Alistair
