Questions:

While working on a simple program in Android, I mistakenly closed LogCat window and I want to know how to show it again.

How to&Answers:

In Eclipse, Goto Window-> Show View -> Other -> Android-> Logcat.

Logcat is nothing but a console of your Emulator or Device.

System.out.println does not work in Android. So you have to handle every thing in Logcat. More Info Look out this Documentation.

Edit 1: System.out.println is working on Logcat. If you use that the Tag will be like System.out and Message will be your message.

Answer:

Write “LogCat” in Quick Access edit box in your eclipse window (top right corner, just before Open Prospective button). And just select LogCat it will open-up the LogCat window in your current prospect

Answer:

In the Window menu, open Show View -> Other ... and type log to find it.

Answer:

In the “Window” menu, open “Open Perspective” -> “Debug”.

click On the plus image icon(you see the below image at status bar), and then select “Logcat”….

Answer:

Go to your desired perspective. Go to ‘Window->show view’ menu.

If you see logcat there, click it and you are done.

Else, click on ‘other’ (at the bottom), chose ‘Android’->logcat.

Hope that helps 🙂
