App crash after reloading Activity with sound

Postby ajoj11 » Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:00 pm

Hi there

I have a problem with my app. I have made a button that reloads my main activity and every time it reloads it generates a random number. Depending on the number another sound will play (all sounds are in MP3 format). Now after reloading my main activity to many times (between 6-9) the program crashes and i don't know why. I hope you can help me with this:

Code: Select all

import java.util.Random;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

public class StartActivity extends Activity {

   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      final MediaPlayer mpButtonClick001 = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.a001);
      final MediaPlayer mpButtonClick002 = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.a002);
      final MediaPlayer mpButtonClick003 = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.a003);
      final MediaPlayer mpButtonClick004 = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.a004);
      final int number = (int)(Math.random() * 3) + 1;
              switch (number) {
          case 1:     setContentView(R.layout.a001);                 
             final Button soundPlay001 = (Button) findViewById(;
              soundPlay001.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
              public void onClick (View v){
                   }}); break;
          case 2:  setContentView(R.layout.a002);
           final Button soundPlay002 = (Button) findViewById(;
           soundPlay002.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
              public void onClick (View v){
           }}); break;
          case 3:  setContentView(R.layout.a003); 
           final Button soundPlay003 = (Button) findViewById(;
           soundPlay003.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
              public void onClick (View v){
           }}); break;
          case 4:  setContentView(R.layout.a004); 
           final Button soundPlay004 = (Button) findViewById(;
           soundPlay004.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
              public void onClick (View v){
           }}); break;
        default: setContentView(; break;          
     final Button startButton = (Button) findViewById(;
          startButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener(){
             public void onClick(View V) {
             switch (number) {
             case 1: mpButtonClick001.stop(); break;
             case 2: mpButtonClick002.stop(); break;
             case 3: mpButtonClick003.stop(); break;
             case 4: mpButtonClick004.stop(); break;
             default: setContentView(; break;
             Intent nextA = new Intent (StartActivity.this, GoBackActivity.class);

Hello ajoj11,
I think it is happening because of too many setContentView and their random replacement. I don't know which version of SDK you are using but I found this problem in 1.5 and 1.6 OS.

Moreover, you can see your logCat crash report. It will give clear view of the problem.

Android is awesome!
