Put problem concerning Views, Layouts and other XML-Resources (like AndroidManifest) here.

Can't display picture from Main.xml

Postby npaul » Sun Nov 29, 2009 3:40 am

hey guys, I've been learning java for about a week now, and have been doing pretty well. Only thing is, I've hit a wall and can't get my application to display a picture. The error I receive is about a resource not existing but when I switch to layout view rather than xml view, it's there.

What am I doing wrong? or is there another way to display the picture

I can supply any other code if need be.

Thanks in advance

You should put the horatio.jpg file in the "drawable" folder, not the "raw" folder, then refer to it as "@drawable/horatio" (without the .jpg).

THANK YOU!!

I'd been searching through google for a good four hours before I posted on here, and have even developed a headache :(
