Android Empty Activity and Blank Activity

I am trying to make an android project and there are many types of activities,
from there I see blank activity and empty activity.

Does anyone know the difference between the two?

  • How can I use html styles in strings with format arguments?
  • Errors upgrading cordova app
  • Relative Layout ignoring setMargin()
  • How to implement/use dynamic type in Android's material design
  • Loading Genymotion library Genymotion directory: /Applications/ Trying to initialize engine Initialize Engine: failed
  • Blank activity is not creating main_activity.xml but is created by empty activity.

    In empty activity, I am unable to add EditText Field, Does anyone know why I am not able to add it? Error says :

    Exception raised during rendering: java.lang.System.arraycopy([CI[CII)V
    Exception details are logged in Window > Show View > Error Log

    And when I open error log, there is no error

    Check which API level you’re using for rendering the view. In my case it was API 20 (for Android Wear). I changed it to API 19 and the error is gone.

    In my case, same to you blank activity don’t generate java&layout but empty activity works well.
    EditText could use with API20, API21. (BTW blank activity worked well with previous installed).

    check the “Android version to use when rendering layouts” and make sure you’re not using a version that ends in “W” for Android Wear (e.g. API 20: Android 4.4W). I don’t believe Wear supports EditText.

    Blank Activity: this will create a blank activity with just 1 textview.
    Full Screen Activity: This is typically used by games. This activity hides the status bar and then your activity takes all screen space.
    Master Detail Flow: This template creates advanced navigation, based on fragments, which will work on both tablets and phones without any change
