android – Binary XML file line #1: invalid drawable tag vector

Questions:

I have an app that runs perfectly on most devices. However, I’m getting a FATAL exception whenever I try to run my application on devices with API < 21.

Here is the log:

I have tried changing to AppComaptEditText, but it still just gives the same error.

Thanks in advance 🙂

How to&Answers:
implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:{current_version}' 

If the issue is caused by a drawableLeft or drawableRight then replace TextView with androidx.appcompat.widget.AppCompatTextView or
EditText with androidx.appcompat.widget.AppCompatEditText.

Then, use one of:

app:drawableLeftCompat app:drawableStartCompat app:drawableEndCompat app:drawableRightCompat 

Answer:

Documentation about Vector Graphics says:

Android 4.4 (API level 20) and lower doesn’t support vector drawables.

With Support Library you have backward-compatibility using the attribute app:srcCompat, but it is not backported for android:drawableRight.

The solution is to keep using .PNG files for those cases or try to set it by code.

Answer:

To create vector drawable use:

vector = VectorDrawableCompat.create(context.getResources(), R.drawable.res, null); 

Or add AppCompatDelegate.setCompatVectorFromResourcesEnabled(true) to Application onCreate() method

Note: this solution doesn’t work for android:drawableLetf or android:drawableRight but allow to use app:srcCompat

Answer:

Android 4.4 (API level 20) and lower doesn’t support vector drawables.

Remove line vectorDrawables.useSupportLibrary = true from your app/buld.gradle.

edit

implement also line in app/buld.gradle.
implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:[version sdk]'
