What is correct xmlns url for AdMob in Android Layout XML

I am testing the AdMob for Android SDK. I can't set the admob:testing="true" because the admob attribute is unknown.


My Eclipse is complaining that admob:testing="true" would have an unknown prefix. Anyone got an idea on how to fix this?

Sub question: Anyone got an idea how to change the height of the ad? It seems to be fixed to 48px, which is not looking good on any DROID phone...

Answer 1

This took me a while to figure out, so I am posting it here:

Since AdMob 4.1 this has changed, so the previous answer is correct for versions <=4.04. Now you need to use:


No place for your own package in the new schema and no need for an attrs.xml file.

Answer 2

Might be worth checking that the error isn't due to something outside the file:

Make sure the package name you are using in your schema URI, "org.ifies.android", matches the value of the package attribute on the manifest element in AndroidManifest.xml.

Make sure res/values/attrs.xml has the attributes specified:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <declare-styleable name="com.admob.android.ads.AdView">
        <attr name="testing" format="boolean" />
        <attr name="backgroundColor" format="color" />
        <attr name="textColor" format="color" />
        <attr name="keywords" format="string" />
        <attr name="refreshInterval" format="integer" />
        <attr name="isGoneWithoutAd" format="boolean" />
