I have been on this problem for a couple hours. After downloading a repository from github, the only error in any .xml file is:
No resource found that matches the given name '@style/Theme.AppCompat.Light'
The code is very straightforward, but there is not one straightforward answer I have found, on how to alleviate the error.
here is the code (in file res/values/styles.xml):
<style name="AppBaseTheme" parent="@style/Theme.AppCompat.Light"> <!-- API 14 theme customizations can go here. --> </style>
The project is located at: https://github.com/erikswed/InstaChatX
I am on Windows, using Eclipse Kepler
What are the steps for that? where is AppCompat located?
Download the support library here:
If you are using Eclipse:
Go to the tabs at the top and select ( Windows -> Android SDK Manager ). Under the ‘extras’ section, check ‘Android Support Library’ and check it for installation.
After that, the AppCompat library can be found at:
You need to reference this AppCompat library in your Android project.
Import the library into Eclipse.
- Right click on your Android project.
- Select properties.
- Click ‘add…’ at the bottom to add a library.
- Select the support library
- Clean and rebuild your project.
