I also copied the code that you wrote above but the problem that i am facing is that it shows an error in the "TAG", it says that it has a private access in android.support.v4.app.FragmentActivity.

Kindly help me that as i am stuck with this and am not able to proceed further.

Thank you

Hi Shreyans Mulkutkar. I had a similar problem and I could not see the log messages. After doing a little research this is what worked for me: 

-Change Log Level from Verbose to Debug
-Change Log Level from Debug to Verbose (basically it just resets it)
  (Make sure that your filter is set to your correct name that you created)
-Then click the Restart button on the left side of the log window (looks like a gray box with green arrow)
It will restart the log and wait about 10 seconds and it should show up. 

If it still does not work then please look at this link as it has more solutions to the same problem. 


Good luck and happy coding.

I added Log messages to my source code, but don't know why its not throwing onCreate, onStart, etc. messages when my App comes up on my emulater. Even added the log message filter. Still not seeing it. 
Can someone point out what is that thing I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
