[SOLVED] Android XML File java.lang.nullpointerexception

Issue

I am building a brand new android project. It’s not my 1st android app so I’m much more frustrated not being able to get rid of this error…

I use an XML File, which has for now only 3 items and NO error in the XML tab :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/container"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context=".gaming..MainActivity" >

    <ImageView
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="@drawable/fondipad"
        android:contentDescription="@string/FondDesc"

        />

    <RelativeLayout 
        android:layout_height="300dp" 
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:background="@drawable/cadremenu">

    </RelativeLayout> 
    </RelativeLayout>

Pretty simple, yay ?
However, the visual tab is not rendering the cadremenu drawable (but the “fond” does)… But the cadremenu.png is in the drawable folder !
I can launch the app but only the background is rendered…
I really don’t know what to do… The xml file returns this exception

any help would be welcome !

EDIT : I already tried removing, putting back drawables, project, …. Cleaning the project, building back… I have even tried deleting & reinstalling every ADT component

Solution

As @laato suggested, I checked my drawable/cadremenu file. I copied/pasted/overwrited the file in my project and then everything worked fine ! I actually had the same problem with all my other resources, like if my resources folder had been corrupted or something like that.

Thank you guys
Hoping that someone will find help here someday
