Confusion about "Sorry! The application ____ (process ____) has stopped unexpectedly..." message

 i, folks:

I am really confused about Android at this point. I'm writing a very
simple application called "Counter" (a starting point) that uses a
drawabl PNG image and no matter what I do, when I run it in the
emulator, I get this annoying message:

"Sorry! The application Counter (process mine.counter) has
stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. [Force close buttton]"

All I want my application to do is to display a Drawable called
"n0.png" which I have defined to my "rsc\drawable" folder.

I've looked at other sample applications, including the ones in the
SDK and tried emulating the coding, without success. I'm very
confused about how the Java, XML, and other files interact. I just
don't see why the program is freezing when I've practically followed
the structure of other applications to the letter.

Below, I've replicated the code. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Charles

 i,

The first thing you need to do is to look at the logs. Open up a
shell to the sdk and fire up: adb logcat. This will show you the
actual stacktrace that's coming up and you should be able to figure
out the issue from there.

Regards,
Steve
