Can't use setForeground method on ImageView
I want to use the setForeground method to show a “play” icon in the center of my ImageView to indicate the user that a video will play if they press it.
Currently I’m having this error which I cannot solve:
Although the documentation says the method should be available since API 1:
I’m targeting and compiling against API 23 with build tools version 23.0.1. I’m targeting min API 16.
One Solution collect form web for “Can't use setForeground method on ImageView”
That is a documentation bug.
setForeground() existed on
FrameLayout from API Level 1; it is only on
View as of API Level 23.
