Yes, it happens. You can fix it easily.
Open build.gradle(Module: app) under Gradle Scripts and change version alpha3 to alpha1 and Sync now
Open style.xml under res -> values -> style.xml and change this line
style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
Base. before Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar like
style name="AppTheme" parent="Base.Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
Hope problem will be solved.
– Use Alpha/Beta at your Own Risk
- You are developing an app, so you don’t want to face these types of issues. So I suggest you use always stable version of every dependency.
The issue you faced was due to using alpha version of AppCompat library. Use stable version to get rid of this issue now and in future.
android.support stable version
Currently 27.1.1 is latest version of AppComactV7. You can see Maven Repo link to find out latest.
final def SUPPORT_VERSION = "27.1.1" implementation "com.android.support:appcompat-v7:$SUPPORT_VERSION" implementation "com.android.support:design:$SUPPORT_VERSION" // use only if already using
I use definitions to have same version for all support versions. Also ignore design library if you are not already using it.
You also need to downgrade your
targetSdkVersion to remove some gradle warnings.
so use below versions
compileSdkVersion 27 targetSdkVersion 27
Read about Alpha & Beta releases.
Gradle scripts>build.gradle(module app) > change ‘com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0-alpha3’ to ‘com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0-alpha1’
You may have something other than alpha3 after “-v7:28.0.0-” whatever it is just change it to alpha1.
