"error: No resource identifier found for attribute 'apikey' in package 'android'"

can i know how to solve this error
thanks in advance

Hi, Sharathg

Check for MapAPI key that you had registered for that application is perfect or not.

I think this link: Google Map View will help you to solve your error.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<com.google.android.maps.MapView
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/mapview"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:clickable="true"
    android:apiKey="Your Maps API Key goes here"
/>

thanks for replying....
i did the process and got the apikey from the site but am getting error even after that..
please help me

Hello Sharathg,

You should check package name in xml file approx last line where :code.google.example is placed, will replace by your package name.

Still if you are not out from this problem then it is barred!

				Cursor c=mydb.rawQuery("SELECT place FROM  '"+database+"'  WHERE roll='"+rollno+"'",null);
				
		       if(c.moveToFirst())
		       {
		    	 do
		    	 {

				   Intent it=new Intent(maps.this,displaymap.class);
				       it.putExtra("location", loc);
				       
				     startActivity(it);
		       }
		      /*else

please help me

I had some funny issues with classes from same packages not being found. Try to add import com.tabex.displaymap; into class maps

PS: Would be nice if you also adhered naming convention like class name starting with upper letter "DisplayMap" or "Maps"

i imported the package u asked to
but even though i am getting error

please help me..

Using the right letter case is the key to following a naming convention:

  • Lowercase is where all the letters in a word are written without any capitalization (e.g., while, if, mypackage).

  • Uppercase is where all the letters in a word are written in capitals. When there are more than two words in the name use underscores to separate them (e.g., MAX_HOURS, FIRST_DAY_OF_WEEK).

  • CamelCase (also known as Upper CamelCase) is where each new word begins with a capital letter (e.g., CamelCase, CustomerAccount, PlayingCard).

  • Mixed case (also known as Lower CamelCase) is the same as CamelCase except the first letter of the name is in lowercase (e.g., hasChildren, customerFirstName,customerLastName).

According to me we have to suffice all aspects that need in programming.

sorry for voilating the conventions..
and i would be happy if the problem is solved
please help me
