Questions:

I don’t know what’s wrong, whenever I launch my app on an Emulator and I switch to landscape mode, it crashes. But it work fine in portrait mode. Please what can i do to solve this. Thanks in advance! here’s my codes…

MainActivity.class

import android.app.FragmentTransaction;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton;
import android.support.design.widget.Snackbar;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.View;

import com.actgeek.android.myapplication.R;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity{

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        MAFragment mfrag = new MAFragment();
        FragmentTransaction FT = getFragmentManager().beginTransaction();
        FT.replace(R.id.fragment, mfrag);
        FT.commit();

        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

        FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);
        fab.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                Snackbar.make(view, "Replace with your own action", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG)
                        .setAction("Action", null).show();
            }
        });
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu_main, menu);
        return true;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
        // Handle action bar item clicks here. The action bar will
        // automatically handle clicks on the Home/Up button, so long
        // as you specify a parent activity in AndroidManifest.xml.
        int id = item.getItemId();

        //noinspection SimplifiableIfStatement
        if (id == R.id.action_settings) {
            return true;
        }

        return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
    }
}

This Fragment displays in the activity_main layout

MAFragment.class

public class MAFragment extends ListFragment {

    public MAFragment() {
    }


   @Override
           public void onActivityCreated(Bundle savedInstanceState){
       super.onActivityCreated(savedInstanceState);

       String topics[] = Mylists.TOPICS;

       MyArrayAdapter adapter = new MyArrayAdapter(getActivity(),
               topics);

        setListAdapter(adapter);

       getListView().setOnItemClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {
           public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int
                   position, long id) {

               Intent intent = new Intent(getActivity(), SubTopicsActivity.class);
               intent.putExtra("index", position);
               startActivity(intent);
           }
       });


   }
}

activity_main layout

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior"
    tools:layout="@layout/fragment_main"
    tools:context="com.actgeek.android.studypack.MainActivity">


<fragment android:id="@+id/fragment"
          android:name="com.actgeek.android.studypack.MAFragment"
          android:layout_width="match_parent"
          android:layout_height="match_parent"
          app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior"/>
</LinearLayout>

Here’s the error i’m getting whenever the app crashes.

How to&Answers:

See if you are missing this in the activity declaration in your manifest

android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize|keyboardHidden"

Answer:

check if you are not missing this property, while declaring in AndroidManifest.

android:configChanges=”orientation|keyboardHidden”

updated :

<activity
            android:name=".SlideNewActivity"
            android:configChanges="orientation|keyboardHidden"
            android:launchMode="singleTask" />

Answer:

Add this Lines in to your activity in .manifest

        <activity
        android:name=".MainActivity"
        android:configChanges="orientation|keyboardHidden"
        />

Also Add this override method in to your MainActivity

@Override
public void onConfigurationChanged(Configuration newConfig) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    super.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);
}

That’s it.
