Android.support.v7.widget.TintContextWrapper cannot be cast

Questions:

I am making a task reminder app following some tutorials. It has two activities namely TaskListActivity and TaskEditActivity. TaskList activity is running fine but when I try to navigate to TaskEditActivity using intent ,it crashes.
Below is my manifest file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

<application
    android:allowBackup="true"
    android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
    android:label="@string/app_name"
    android:supportsRtl="true"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
    <activity
        android:name=".TaskListActivity"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>
    <activity
        android:name=".TaskEditActivity"
        android:label="@string/title_activity_task_edit"
        android:parentActivityName=".TaskListActivity"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar">
        <meta-data
            android:name="android.support.PARENT_ACTIVITY"
            android:value="com.dummies.tasks.activity.TaskListActivity" />
    </activity>
</application>

And below is my build.gradle file:

 apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 24
    buildToolsVersion "24.0.0"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.dummies.tasks"
        minSdkVersion 21
        targetSdkVersion 24
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])

    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'

    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:24.1.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:design:24.1.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:24.1.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:24.1.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:cardview-v7:24.1.1'

    compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.4.0'

}

It’s Logcat is as follows:

Adapter class :

        {
static String[] fakeData = new String[] {
        "One",
        "Two",
        "Three",
        "Four",
        "Five",
        "Ah . . . ah . . . ah!"
        };
@Override
public ViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int i) {

        CardView v = (CardView) LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext())

                }
            });
}

        return fakeData.length;
        }
            public static String getImageUrlForTask(long taskId) {

        imageView = (ImageView)card.findViewById(R.id.image);
    }
}
}

TaskEditActivity activity to which I want to navigate from TaskListActivity:

package com.dummies.tasks.activity;

    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.View;



    public class TaskEditActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
        public static final String EXTRA_TASKID = "taskId";

        @Override
        protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
            setContentView(R.layout.activity_task_edit);
            Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
            setSupportActionBar(toolbar);
            getSupportActionBar().setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(true);
        }

    }

TaskListActivity or the main activity :

package com.dummies.tasks.activity;

import android.content.Intent;
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.View;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;

import com.dummies.tasks.interfaces.OnEditTask;

public class TaskListActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements OnEditTask {

    @Override


    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_task_list);
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);




    }
    @Override
    public void editTask(long id) {
// When we are asked to edit a reminder, start the
// TaskEditActivity with the id of the task to edit.
        startActivity(new Intent(this, TaskEditActivity.class)
                .putExtra(TaskEditActivity.EXTRA_TASKID, id));
    }
}

OnEditTask interface :

package com.dummies.tasks.interfaces;
public interface OnEditTask {
    /**
     * Called when the user asks to edit or insert a task.
     */
    public void editTask(long id);
}
How to&Answers:

Your activities extend AppCompatActivity. Since Support library version 23.3.0 View.getContext() returns a TintContextWrapper object instead of an Activity. You can extract the Activity as described here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/32973351/6009935
