So I'm trying to make AOuth work in android for twitter. Here's the code I'm having errors with in my activity:

@Override
public Loader<OAuthConsumer> onCreateLoader(int id, Bundle arg1) {

    consumerLoader = new getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(); //consumerLoader is declared in the activity as "private Loader<OAuthConsumer> consumerLoader;"
    return consumerLoader;
        // After this method you're going in loadInBackground()
}

Here's the code for my asyncTaskLoader:

class getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer extends AsyncTaskLoader<OAuthConsumer>{

	public getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(Context context) {
		super(context);
		// TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
	}

	@Override
	public OAuthConsumer loadInBackground() {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		
		return new CommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(Constants.CONSUMER_KEY, Constants.CONSUMER_SECRET);
	}
	
}

This is a 2 part question. 1st question: I get an error when I use import android.support.v4.app.LoaderManager The error is on Loader<OAuthConsumer>. It says "The return type is incompatible with LoaderManager.LoaderCallbacks.onCreateLoader(int, Bundle)". But the error goes away if I use import android.app.LoaderManager instead. My question is: Should I try to fix the error with using the support library, so that more devices will be compatible with my app? If yes, how can I fix that error?

 

2nd question: No matter what import I use, I get an error on new getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(); The error says: "Type mismatch: cannot convert from getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer to Loader". What am I doing wrong?

The sad-but-true fact is that if you want broad support you really should build against 2.3.  It represents almost 40% of all current users.  So use the older version.

 

For your errors, you need to return the right type.  Make sure your class extends the Loader class that matches the same interface (android.support.v4.content.Loader).

I'm already doing that: public class MainActivity extends Activity implements LoaderManager.LoaderCallbacks

 

is that what you mean?

That is one of the lines, yes.  Which interface is it?

 

The android SDK people made a mistake when they reused the names.  (It is a common enough mistake, but still very annoying and far too frequent.)

 

So which LoaderManager is it?  Is that supposed to be android.support.v4.app.LoaderManager or android.app.LoaderManager ?  Both of them are LoaderManager classes, but the two types are not compatible.

 

When in doubt give the full path.

I still get the errors

Then something is still pointing to the other type.
 
Double-check that import android.app.LoaderManager does not appear in any of your files.  After verifying that it isn't present, rebuild the files.

 

 

If the problem still persists, post the relevant updated code.

MainActivity is the only activity present in my app, so import android.app.LoaderManager is not written anywhere else.

Could it be because my target sdk version is 16? My minimum sdk version is 10. I doubt it, since changing those values doesn't fix the errors.

 

Here's the code for my main activity. I removed anything that didn't have to do with the problem. Tell me if you want the whole thing:

import oauth.signpost.OAuth;
import oauth.signpost.OAuthConsumer;
import oauth.signpost.OAuthProvider;
import oauth.signpost.commonshttp.CommonsHttpOAuthConsumer;
import oauth.signpost.commonshttp.CommonsHttpOAuthProvider;
import twitter4j.Status;
import twitter4j.Twitter;
import twitter4j.TwitterException;
import twitter4j.TwitterFactory;
import twitter4j.auth.AccessToken;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.content.Loader;
import android.content.SharedPreferences;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.AsyncTask;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v4.content.AsyncTaskLoader;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.Toast;
import android.support.v4.app.LoaderManager;
//import android.app.LoaderManager;

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements android.support.v4.app.LoaderManager.LoaderCallbacks{

	final String TAG = getClass().getName();
	
	private OAuthConsumer consumer;
        private OAuthProvider provider;
        private String token;
        private String secret;
        private Loader<OAuthConsumer> consumerLoader;
    
        Activity context;
	
	
	@Override
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
	    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
	    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
		
	    Button signInButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.signInButton);
        
            signInButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
			
	        public void onClick(View v) {
	        	// TODO Auto-generated method stub
	    	    sign_in();
	        }
	    });		
	}

	public void sign_in()
        {
    	    try {
    	        this.consumer = (OAuthConsumer) new getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(context);    	    
    	    } catch (Exception e) {
    	        Log.e(TAG, "Error creating consumer / provider",e);
    	    }    	
        }
    
    
	@Override
	public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
	    // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
	    getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);
	    return true;
	}
	
	
	@Override
        public Loader<OAuthConsumer> onCreateLoader(int id, Bundle arg1) {
            consumerLoader = new getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer();
            return consumerLoader;
        }
	
	
}


class getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer extends AsyncTaskLoader<OAuthConsumer>{

	public getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(Context context) {
	    super(context);
	    // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
	}

	@Override
	public OAuthConsumer loadInBackground() {
	    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
		
	    return new CommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(Constants.CONSUMER_KEY, Constants.CONSUMER_SECRET);
	}
	
}

Well, I fixed the error on public Loader<OAuthConsumer> onCreateLoader by replacing it with public android.support.v4.content.Loader onCreateLoader.

 

I also fixed the error on new getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer(); by replacing private Loader<OAuthConsumer> consumerLoader; with private getCommonsHttpOAuthConsumer consumerLoader;

 

I don't know if it's right tho
