Compiling Hello World

I'm working from a simple "hello world" tutorial and then modify it into the app I want. I started out with a hello world app added a button and now I'm tryin to respond to button events, etc.

But when I compile I'm getting the error: "package andriod.widget does not exist \n import andriod.widget.Button;"

The code is

package com.luke.bowls;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import andriod.widget.Button;

public class Bowls extends Activity
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
                final Button button = (Button)findViewById(;
                button.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
                    public void onClick(View v) {
                        // Perform action on clicks

It looks like a library reference problem but most of build code is hidden from me so I have no idea what to do to fix it.

Answer 2

if you use Eclipse, you should press Ctrl+Shift+O to automatically import the needed libraries instead of manually typing it :)

Answer 3

maud-dib, I've sometimes had trouble downloading the eclipse plugin, but have always gotten it to work by manually downloading the plugin zip file and installing it in eclipse as local/archive plugin.
