Unfortunately app stopped Error while starting Intent

I tried re creating the same scenario, created a layout for new Activity. When I start the Intent I am getting a series of logs, and in my emulator it says unfortunately app not working.

My Logs : Process: com.example.ragesh.mystory, PID: 8743 android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit activity class {com.example.ragesh.mystory/com.example.ragesh.mystory.StoryStart}; have you declared this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml? at android.app.Instrumentation.checkStartActivityResult(Instrumentation.java:1761) at android.app.Instrumentation.execStartActivity(Instrumentation.java:1485) at android.app.Activity.startActivityForResult(Activity.java:3736) at android.app.Activity.startActivityForResult(Activity.java:3697) at android.support.v4.app.FragmentActivity.startActivityForResult(FragmentActivity.java:817) at android.app.Activity.startActivity(Activity.java:4007) at android.app.Activity.startActivity(Activity.java:3975) at com.example.ragesh.mystory.MainActivity.startStory(MainActivity.java:41) at com.example.ragesh.mystory.MainActivity.access$000(MainActivity.java:15) at com.example.ragesh.mystory.MainActivity$1.onClick(MainActivity.java:31) at android.view.View.performClick(View.java:4756) at android.view.View$PerformClick.run(View.java:19749) at android.os.Handler.handleCallback(Handler.java:739) at android.os.Handler.dispatchMessage(Handler.java:95) at android.os.Looper.loop(Looper.java:135) at android.app.ActivityThread.main(ActivityThread.java:5221) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Native Method) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:372) at com.android.internal.os.ZygoteInit$MethodAndArgsCaller.run(ZygoteInit.java:899) at com.android.internal.os.ZygoteInit.main(ZygoteInit.java:694)

MyCode :

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity { private static final String TAG=MainActivity.class.getSimpleName();

private EditText enterNameWiget;
private Button startStoryButton;
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    enterNameWiget=(EditText) findViewById(R.id.idEditText);
    startStoryButton=(Button) findViewById(R.id.idButton);
    startStoryButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {


private void startStory() {

    Intent intent=new Intent(MainActivity.this,StoryStart.class);

Hi Ragesh,

From the log i can see that you trying to start an Intent by going to another activity called (StoryStart) which you have not declared in Manifest file.

Here is the important part of the log that is showing you the problem:

android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit activity class {com.example.ragesh.mystory/com.example.ragesh.mystory.StoryStart}; have you declared this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml?

Solution: Please declare that activity in Manifest file.

Happy coding :)
