Android [string array] cannot be resolved or is not a field

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm getting an error about a string array (located in strings.xml) not being able to be resolved. I've done everything the internet says: Restarted Eclipse Deleted my R.java file inside the gen folder My values folder is still inside the res folder, not moved None of my XML files have erros Ran Project -> Clean I don't have android.R imported in my class. Checked the R.java class, it indeed doesn't have an app_categories property (my array's name) The relevant part of the XML: <string-array name="app_categories"> <item >Cat 1</item> <item >Cat 2</ite (HowTos)
