Android Studio Rendering Problems

+2 Odd Gunnar Bjørgen · May 5, 2015
Hey Guys,

i just started the new android development series and i have run into a little problem with android studio.

When i try to look at the graphical layout of the app i get this error message

The following classes could not be instantiated: 

- (Open Class, Show Exception, Clear Cache)

Any advice on how to fix this?

In your project 
Just go to app > res > values > styles.xml

and change this <parent attribute of style tag >

<!-- Base application theme. -->
<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
<!-- Customize your theme here. -->

<!-- Base application theme. -->
<style name="AppTheme" parent="Base.Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
<!-- Customize your theme here. -->
