Hi:

I'm a newbie to the world of Android, Android Studio and gradle.

I recently migrated a project into Android Studio 0.4.3.
When compiling, it gave me errors on several lines of java, including the following:

FragmentManager fm = getFragmentManager();

fm.findFragmentById()

@Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

getResources().getStringArray(R.array.course_descriptions);

Open in new window


I see the following error message:
Call requires API level 11 (current min is 7)

I'm running Android Studio .0.4.3.
I also downloaded Android 4.4.2 (API 19) through the SDK manager.

I added the following line to my manifest:
    <uses-sdk
        android:minSdkVersion="14"
        android:targetSdkVersion="19" />

Open in new window


I did a "Sync Project with Gradle files", cleaned and rebuilt the project.
I still see the same errors.

How do I fix this issue?

Thanks,
JohnB

You can delete the 'apk' manually and try rebuild the project again.

Not sure what you mean by delete the API manually.
Can you be more specific?

Thanks,

Not API, delete 'apk' directory from 'build\apk\' and try again. Thanks.
