Android :: Mystery Null Pointer Error Seeking Opinions

Oct 31, 2009

An error that appeared in my Flurry logs but seemed impossible to reproduce otherwise just occured That's the good news.The bad news is that the LogCat info is not telling me enough.I would appreciate a second set of eyes taking a look and offering wisdom.The lead up is that I was playing with my app, and put it away for a while. I did a lot of other things with my phone since, like making phone calls, etc I hooked up my phone to the computer to make another attempt to find the mystery bug, and decided to see if anything weird appeared in the logs from earlier.I then brought my app to the foreground using the Home/Hold technique and whamo the bug appeared before my eyes in LogCat.

Android :: Returning Data From AsyncTask Resulting In Null Pointer Error

Jul 20, 2010

I am trying to do what I think is a fairly simple task to authenticate a user on my server. I am using AsyncTask as a private subclass of my Activity, however when I try to populate the user object after authenticating it keeps setting it to null. Is there something strange in how the onPostExecute() method is called that is causing this? I originally had the AsyncTask as its own class but ran into the same problem, so I am try to solve this using a private subclass.

Android :: Why Do I Get Null Pointer Exception From TabWidget?

May 31, 2010

I'm writing an android program in which I have an activity that uses tabs.Anybody have any idea how I can get this content into a tab without crashing my application? My actual program is more complex and has more than one tab but I simplified it down to this in an attempt to find out why it's crashing but it still crashes and I don't know why.If I don't use LayoutInflator my program doesn't crash but I don't get any content either, just tabs.

Android : Null Pointer Exception When Installing SDK On Mac OS X

Apr 1, 2010

I'm installing the Android SDK on Mac OS X. Following the instructions on the Android Development site, I've downloaded the SDK and modified my .bash_profile to include the path. The next step is to use the Android SDK and AVD Manager to actually download the platforms.
However, when I use the Manager to install the platforms, I get the following error in the Terminal. I've looked around for similar problems in the Eclipse and Android forums and haven't found anything yet. Is something else damaged in the environment and needs to be repaired? Any recommendations on where I should look? Code...

Android :: Null Pointer On An Attempt To Call A Button

Nov 21, 2010

I have a null pointer on a button that I need to take me to a new layout when pushed. I have the code set as:

((Button) findViewById(; inside a method that uses conditional statements. It is a basic face detect app. If faces are not found, I do this:

if (facesFound < 1) {
mTheMessage = (TextView) findViewById(;
mThePicture = (ImageView) findViewById(;

if faces are found, I draw a box on the face, and do this: Code...

So, my issue lies in this: In one of my layouts in the flipper, the button that rests on the layout will need to give the user the option to snap a new picture if there are no faces found. The other layout will need the button (upon click) to have the faces cropped and the results to be sent to another layout.

The issue I am facing is where the code: ((Button) findViewById(;

needs to be placed in order for the program to release the button has been clicked, it calls the case in my switch statement, and runs the crop face_method.

I try putting it in the if statement where I set the image View and text View, but I get a null pointer on that line I am declaring my button on.

The buttons I have on my main menu work fine, as they are in my onCreate method, but I don't know where to play this button command, and also where I need to place my reopen Camera command.

I've had fine luck using SQLite with straight, direct SQL in Android, but this is the first time I'm wrapping a DB in a ContentProvider. I keep getting a null pointer exception when calling getWritableDatabase() or getReadableDatabase().

Is this just a stupid mistake I've made with initializations in my code or is there a bigger issue?

Android : Received App.Application Null Pointer Exception

Sep 23, 2010

When my app loads, I fill my with some data. The app runs fine as I use it and all the data is available. However, when I leave the app over night and look at it again the next day, I receive NullPointerExceptions when attempting to use that same data. I do not believe Application objects get garbage collected, so I have no idea what is going on? I also lose static objects in classes used by my Activity classes. I am on Froyo 2.2 on a Google Nexus One. Looks like someone else had a similiar issue:

Android :: Open GL Extending GLSurfaceView Null Pointer Exceptions

Jul 31, 2010

I am trying to create a simple 3-D app for android that will have an additional view layered on top of the OpenGL view (much like the SurfaceViewOverlay example in the API demos). I'm running into an issue trying to implement that method with an extended GLSurfaceView class. I've set up an example where I'm trying to do a combination of this demo with the API Oerlay demo. If I try to cast to a Martin's VortexView object like this (replace lines 44-46 in the API demo) I get a ClassCastException error (which is understandable, as I assume casting is fairly specific) so I guess I'm looking for a method to transfer the view from a GLSurfaceView instance to a new subclass or a way to set the rendering surface to an XML defined view for a subclass after it has been created. it will do the casting correctly with the above code but generates Null Pointer Exceptions when it hits the surfaceCreated and surfaceChanged routines (I think it's the called methods in the GLThread class based on the line number) inside the GLSurfaceView class. So maybe I should change the question- How can I implement an extension for GLSurfaceView without generating NullPointerExceptions on surfaceCreated and surfaceChanged, or how can I debug them without having the source for Code...

Android : Null Pointer Exception When Assigned A View To An Activity

Jul 27, 2010

I have built an activity to handle gestures in my Android game and want it to respond to a gesture anywhere on the screen but I am getting this error on the Log:


I understand I need to allocate a view to the activity and as you will see in my XML, a view called gestures will serve this purpose but I keep getting Inflation errors when trying to inflate the view. Before when this happened to me it was a misspelling of the view name in the XML but that's not it this time I don't think.

How would I properly assign the 'gesture' view to this activity to prevent the errors?

I have defined my activity in my code like this:


I have created the activity in the main thread in it's doStart() method by saying:


And my XML layout looks like this:
