AppCompat v7

| November 6, 2013 | 0 Comments

I’ve been using AppCompat v7 for a few months now. I had a difficult time getting it to work… but it did. Both my Calculator & Quote apps were published using it. But today I ran the Android SDK Manager and upgraded to API 19 and I had some errors and a difficult time figuring out the problem.

Apparently I forgot step #5:
“In the new library project, expand the libs/ folder, right-click each .jar file and select Build Path > Add to Build Path. For example, when creating the the v7 appcompat project, add both the android-support-v4.jar and android-support-v7-appcompat.jar files to the build path.”

Anyway, If you still need to install AppCompat v7, take a look here… http://developer.android.com/tools/support-library/setup.html#

Good Luck!
