java – Android Resources$NotFoundException

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am creating an app in which the players enter their names into edit texts. This information is retrieved and sent to a second activity through extras. Whenever I run this, I get a Resources$NotFoundException. I am nut sure if this is from my code or from my resources folder.

Here is my code (UPDATED WITHOUT TOAST STATEMENTS)

private void getNames(int number){      

    Intent intent = new Intent(Setup.this, Test.class);
    intent.putExtra("numberofplayers", number);

    try {

    if(!player1.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p1 = player1.getText().toString();
    else
        p1= "Player 1";
    if(!player2.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p2 = player2.getText().toString();
    else
        p2= "Player 2";
    if(!player3.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p3 = player3.getText().toString();
    else
        p3= "Player 3";
    if(!player4.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p4 = player4.getText().toString();
    else
        p5= "Player 5";
    if(!player6.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p6 = player6.getText().toString();
    else
        p6= "Player 6";
    if(!player7.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p7 = player7.getText().toString();
    else
        p7= "Player 7";
    if(!player8.getText().toString().contentEquals(""))
        p8 = player8.getText().toString();
    else
        p8= "Player 8";

    switch (number) {
    case 2:
        String[] a = {p1,p2};
        names=a;
        break;
    case 3:
        String[] b = {p1,p2,p3};
        names=b;
        break;
    case 4:
        String[] c = {p1,p2,p3,p4};
        names=c;
        break;
    case 5:
        String[] d= {p1,p2,p3,p4,p5};
        names=d;
        break;
    case 6:
        String[] e = {p1,p2,p3,p4,p5,p6};
        names=e;
        break;
    case 7:
        String[] f = {p1,p2,p3,p4,p5,p6,p7};
        names=f;
        break;
    case 8:
        String[] g = {p1,p2,p3,p4,p5,p6,p7,p8};
        names=g;
        break;
    }
    } catch (Exception e) {
        Log.e("Setup.class Error:", e.getMessage());
    }
    //Toast.makeText(this, number + "", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

    //for(int q =0;q<names.length;q++)
    //  Toast.makeText(this, names[q], Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

    intent.putExtra("namearray", names);
    startActivity(intent);
}

Here is the code for the receiving activity:

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    Bundle ext = getIntent().getExtras();
    int i= ext.getInt("numberofplayers");
    String[] names = ext.getStringArray("namearray");

    Toast.makeText(this, i, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

    for(int q =0;q<names.length;q++)
        Toast.makeText(this, names[q], Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
}

And here is the logcat error (UPDATED LOGCAT REPORT):

How to&Answers:

This is your first Toast call:

Toast.makeText(this, number, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

Here, the second argument is an integer (number), so it thinks that is a string ID. Try replacing number with number+"".
