Steps to reproduce:
1. Open X.S.
2. Create any android application.
3. Add any image to the Resources\Drawable folder.
4. Create a new xml file in Resources\Values called Styles.xml and paste code mention in docs.
5. Add a new activity to your project called SplashActivity, and paste the code mention in docs.
6. Debug or run the application.

Actual result:
User is not able to add splash screen for android application.Application giving build error.

Below is the build output for the same:

Expected result:
Splash screen should show up as soon after the user launches application on device.

Environment details:
All mac and windows
XS 4.0 (build 2968) - e606632dfc7d2f59e31abd8d7ae0b222194abb7c
Mono 3.0.11 ((no/edc181c)
MFA 4.7.4-14

Note : We have use following documents for creating a splash screen.
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-05-01 12:01:07 UTC
Your code is incorrect. The code you copied from the docs assumes you have an activity called "Activity1" in the current namespace. The error indicates this class cannot be found. If you do have an activity called "Activity1", it's possible you need a using directive in the copied code, or change the namespace in the copied code to match the namespace of your project.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds:

X.S 4.0.5 (build 4)
Xamarin.Android 4.7.4-14

And we have changed namespace now we are getting another build error "https://gist.github.com/atin360/43bf6466217565a715ec"

We have attached a solution "AndroidAppSts.zip" for which I have tried to see splash screen. Please look into it and let us know are we missing something else in our solution.
Comment 4 PJ 2013-05-10 11:20:52 UTC
Lal, your gist shows an issue generating the trial splash screen. That would be a separate bug.

Try this bug's steps with a normal business license, and refile comment 3.
