Description softlion 2014-01-03 05:50:36 UTC
in an Android 4.1 project, i created some controls derived from View.
They work perfectly in debug/release mode.

I wanted to reuse these controls: i created an Android lib project, move the files to the project (without changing the namespace), change the project target to 4.1, and reference the lib inside the main project.

After these operations, the project builds ok, runs ok, but the custom controls are not displayed, and there are NO error in the Android log ?!!

I undone all changes, recreated a new lib, run the project. Same problem.

I moved all files back into the main project. It works ok.
