Hi When I add a plain text field in eclipese

I get this error message

Because v13 includes v4, using only v13. WARNING: Found both android-support-v4 and android-support-v13 in the dependency list. Because v13 includes v4, using only v13.

Do you know how to fix this please?

If anyone else need help with this.

Check the "Android version to use when rendering layouts" and make sure you're not using a version that ends in "W" for Android Wear (e.g. API 20: Android 4.4W). I don't believe Wear supports EditText.

In both Android Studio and Eclipse, it's the dropdown with the green android in the layout preview's toolbar. You may want to set it explicitly and not allow the IDE to choose the Android version automatically.


Oh it sounds like you might want to look at your build path. I'm rusty and haven't been on Eclipse in a minute but you right click either the top level of the project directory or else you might need to click near where you will see the folders referencing Androidx.x.x whatever numbers...in the drop down look for editing the build path or if you want to make things easier just delete the v4 library from within your SDK manager.
