StartActivity is returning a NullPointException

Postby Skeniver » Thu Aug 06, 2009 11:26 am

Hi there

I am trying to run an activity when a button is clicked. It was running earlier, and I can't find what might be causing it...

I execute startActivityForResult(i, ADD_USER);

and before it gets to the NewUser activity, it is giving the null pointer exception before opening the NewUser.class.

I have an AddComputer class that runs on selecting a menu option just fine doing the exact same thing.

The new user activity is in the manifest, and as I say it was running just fine earlier...

Any ideas on what I could check?

Would posting any code help? There is quite a bit all over the place, so I wasn't sure what might be useful...

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for late reply...

U need to add the activity in androidmanifest.xml after the first activity ends.

<activity android:name=".NewUser"/>

hence solves the NullPointerException
