Default How to open project with eclipse

Hi Friends,

I am new to Android Development. Actually i am iphone developer and i am learning android developer. I installed android and eclipse and i run one project successfully.

Now problem is that after creating project, it doesn't appear in eclipse. So can anyone plz tell me that how can i open project into eclipse.

Actually i haven't used eclipse anytime and android package contains lots of like , 1. assets, 2. bin, 3. gen, 4. res, 5. src, 6. .classpath, 7. .project, 8. AndroidManifest, 9. default.properties.

So which file should i open in eclipse.

How did you "create" the project? Did you create it via eclipse?

If you created the project via the command line using the sdk you then have to import the project into eclipse.

File > new > project...

In the wizard, choose android project

Next button

The new android project wizard will open. Change the radio button to "create project from existing source "

Use the browse button to find your project.

Then select the finish button from the bottom of the wizard.

If your developing basic applications its usually easier to just create the project in eclipse in the first place.

I am having the same problem. I am using Eclipse with the Android plugins.

The first time I ever created a project, it looked groovy. I had this project browser on the left and could navigate the project files just fine. I had the error window at the bottom too. I was opening up some of the source files getting used to the interface.

I realized that I wanted to change some of the names of some of the fields (Activity, Package Name, etc) since I didnt use the right naming conventions and I dont know how to change them after the project was created.

I closed Eclipse.

Re-opened, created a new project... and ... nothing...

No browser.. No error window...

I click create android project again and fill out the fields the same.

I cant as it says that already exists.

Why cant I open it if it exists?

I tried to re-import it from the workspace files and it says it cant because it already exists in the workspace. I see Project->Open Project but it is greyed out.

How do you open a project in eclipse?!?

Default How to open project with eclipse

Did you close 'Project Explorer' in Eclipse?
If so, you can re-open with a quick visit to the 'Window' menu.

Project Explorer (and Package Explorer) appears in the left pane when you create your first project in Eclipse and lists the subdirectories of your project.

To open Project Explorer, go to Window > Show View > Project Explorer

to "open" an existing project in eclipse, you have to go to File | New | Android Project
and on the window that appears, select "Create from existing source" Then, just select the root folder of the project and click OK.
