DisplayMessageActivity not a type?

Noob developing Android apps.


public void sendMessage(View view) {
    	Intent intent = new Intent(this, DisplayMessageActivity.class);
    	EditText editText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.edit_message);
    	String message = editText.getText().toString();
    	intent.putExtra(EXTRA_MESSAGE, message);
    }

Open in new window


Does not know what DisplayMessageActivity is.  It says:

DisplayMessageActivity cannot be resolved to a type.

Here are my includes:

package com.netendeavor.ws;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;

//DisplayMessageActivity.class;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.view.View;
import android.os.Bundle;

Another google cockup by the looks of it. If you are doing the google tutorial, read this solution

They don't explain that later on you create an activity fragment for the class in question.  Meh.

I was left thinking this was some sort of built-in method.

You are not the first to be caught out by this. If you are using eclipse (and I assume android studio), when you mouse over a class name it will pop up its declaration, whether it is a library function or one of your own. If it does not exist it will tell you and give you the option of creating it. This can be useful when doing poorly constructed tutorials.
