"I've created a custom LinearLayout and when I try to use it, the designer no longer works. I have a message that says The layout could not be loaded: com.android.layoutlib.bridge.MockView cannot be cast to android.view.ViewGroup"
Any news on this issue ?
The cast error is fixed, but the designer doesn't support rendering custom widgets. The custom widget will be shown as a placeholder.
Removing the crash is useless if you can't somehow render something. Could you find the first base class that you can render and use that one ?
