Setting up on Android Studio

Setting up on Android Studio

1 person has this problem

Hi, I am new to Wikitude and I had followed the instructions on setup guide on Androids to use Wikitude on Android Studio.

But I have met a problem where the Android Studio can't resolve the symbol of 'architectView' when I added the following line:

this.architectView = (ArchitectView)this.findViewById( );
final StartupConfiguration config = new StartupConfiguration( * license key */ );
this.architectView.onCreate( config );


Did I missed out anything?


My code was as simple as:

package com.example.smallfishy_.myapplication;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.opengl.GLES20;

import com.wikitude.architect.ArchitectView;
import com.wikitude.architect.StartupConfiguration;
import com.example.smallfishy_.myapplication.R;

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        this.architectView = (ArchitectView)this.findViewById(;
        final StartupConfiguration config = new StartupConfiguration("111");
        this.architectView.onCreate( config );


    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
        getMenuInflater().inflate(, menu);
        return true;

    public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
        // Handle action bar item clicks here. The action bar will
        // automatically handle clicks on the Home/Up button, so long
        // as you specify a parent activity in AndroidManifest.xml.
        int id = item.getItemId();

        //noinspection SimplifiableIfStatement
        if (id == {
            return true;

        return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);

Hi there!


Note that refers to a the AR-view in your layout XML. Ensure it is defined and has the proper id. Please have a look at the Sample Application, which comes together with the SDK (Though currently written in Eclipse the concept stays the same).
Also note that Wiktude SDK 5 will be published soon and comes with an Android Studio sample app.

Hope that helps.
