Im building an app and the target is Google APIs, platform 2.3.1 and API level 9. When i finish creating a new Android Project this way, when i navigate to Graphical Layout in main.xml, I cant see the layout. I cant select the theme for the any skin either as it is grayed out. May i know how to solve this problem? I want to see the layout preview. If the above description was too complicated, then go ahead and read this. I start off with Eclipse. Create a new Android Project with build target GoogleAPIs (platform 2.3.1 & API level 9). I fill in the respective fields in the New Project form. Then when i navigate to main.xml and select the Graphical Layout tab, the preview of the Hello World string isn't shown. Nor can i see a black screen layout. Any solutions to solve this problem? As im posting this, I'm downloading GoogleAPIs of API level 4 and revision 2 hoping that it would solve the problem. I've uploaded a screenshot to make it easier to help me.
