android – How to use getResource.getIdentifier() to get Layout?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have a question,everyone.

I want to use getResource.getIdentifier() to get my layout element in XML (layout/xxx.xml).

But I am encounter ” Resource ID #0x7f070003 type #0x12 is not valid…” error message.

I don’t know how to fixed this problem.

I am use a method return linearlayout.

It’s my code below:

public class MainActivity extends Activity {


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

  getWeekOfDay(2).setBackgroundColor(Color.RED);
 }

 private LinearLayout getWeekOfDay(int n)
 {
  int layoutID = getResources().getIdentifier("layout"+n, "id", getPackageName());
  return (LinearLayout) LayoutInflater.from(this).inflate(layoutID, null);
 }
....
...
..
}

My layout have many linearlayout, but the name is similar(layout1, layout2, layout3…).

I want to use call method get appoint element.

my layout code is below:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/LinearLayout1"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    tools:context=".MainActivity" >

    <LinearLayout
        android:id="@+id/layout1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_weight="0.37"
        android:background="#cccccc" >

            <TextView
            android:id="@+id/TextView03"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="test1" />
    </LinearLayout>

    <LinearLayout
        android:id="@+id/layout2"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_weight="0.37"
        android:background="#cccccc" >

        <TextView
            android:id="@+id/TextView02"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="test2" />
    </LinearLayout>

    <LinearLayout
        android:id="@+id/layout3"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_weight="0.37"
        android:background="#cccccc" >

        <TextView
            android:id="@+id/TextView01"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="test3" />
</LinearLayout>

<LinearLayout
    android:id="@+id/layout4"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_weight="0.37"
    android:background="#cccccc" >

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="test4" />

</LinearLayout>

Have anyone know this problem? How to resolve this problem?

How to solve:

With this:

int layoutID = getResources().getIdentifier("layout"+n, "layout", getPackageName());

you basically retrieve the id of a layout file that you can inflate. It’s the dynamic version of

int layoutID = R.layout.layout1;

What you intend to do is retrieve a view from an already inflated layout. That’s how you’d do it:

int layoutID = getResources().getIdentifier("layout"+n, "id", getPackageName());
return (LinearLayout)findViewById(layoutID);

That’s the dynamic version of

return (LinearLayout)findViewById(R.id.layout1);
