java – Android Failed to instantiate one or more classes-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have a running project and all the xml files are showing me the error message Android Failed to instantiate one or more classes. The program still works.

I cleaned the cache and used invalidate Caches and Restart.

Here the Full message:

The following classes could not be instantiated android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatTextView

Tip: Use View.isInEditMode() in your custom view to skip code or show sample data when shown in the IDE.

How to solve:

In styles.xml,

Changing the theme from Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar to Base.Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar has worked for me.

###

Finally, after 4 days of facing the same error I resolved this on my own:

Click on

Build–> Make Build

and then

Refresh the layout.

###

In the build.gradle (Module: app) change the implementation of appcompat to a previous version by searching the developer.google

This is an error in the android framework usually happens in the alpha and beta appcompat versions.

Hope this helps.
