It's probably something stupid that I'm overlooking, but nevertheless it's frustrating (and confusing) the crap outta me. I declared a string-array in my res/values/strings.xml file, but when I try to reference it in code, it says it's of type 'int' and can't be converted to a string. R.java also has it listed as an integer array. The thing is, in my XML it's declared as <string-array>, not <integer-array>. Any suggestions?
