I have created a new android project in Eclipse helios and I get an error in the autogenerated calss file, Eclipse gives an error:

'R cannot be resolved to a variable'

I have been googling for a solution but cannot find one, any suggestions?

I have added the java, layout and manifest as a code snippet and a screenshot of the buildpath in eclipse.

Tks,
Owen.

 Libraries in use
package map.googlemaps;


import com.google.android.maps.MapView;
import android.os.Bundle;
import com.google.android.maps.MapActivity;

	

public class MapsActivity extends MapActivity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main); // error here
    }
    @Override
    protected boolean isRouteDisplayed(){
    	return false;
    }
}

main.xml->
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
		android:layout_width="fill_parent"
		android:layout_height="fill_parent">

R is a generated class. All you have to do, is have it in your classpath of the project.

I dont work with Eclipse, so I cant really tell you how to add that to the classpaht, but it should be very simple.

If you are just starting out, you might give IntelliJ IDEA a try - the new version has a free community edition with Android support built in. With IDEA the wizard for building a basic Android application will do all this stuff for you.

I guess Eclipse should have done that also, but you might have taken a wrong turn at some step.
