I think this is a fairly straightforward question but I have not been able to find an answer after some searching. I am new to Android development. I am using Eclipse and have ADT installed.
I just wanted to know if the IDE has a feature that will allow me to easily add a new layout file to my project.
At the moment I am manually adding a file to the project and calling it something like mynewlayout.xml and then manually copying the xml from the default layout (added to new Android projects). I would like to find out if it is possible to create a new layout through the IDE like you would create a new activity (by selecting AndroidManifest.xml and choosing the Application tab).
Go to file – new – other – Android – android XML Layout
- Right click on the layout.
- Then New
- Then click on the android xml file.
- Name of file like rossman.xml
- Click finish
