    I'm trying to run a very simple (my first) Android app in an emulator I've set up, but my app doesn't display within the emulator. I'm expecting to see (code below) a TextView with some Text assigned to it.

    All I see is a black "honeycomb" background in the emulator (which looks like a "DOS box" or Command prompt) with the time (5 hours in the future), date, and "Charging (50%)"

    I'm using an AVD set up to use a version 3.2 emulator. I've got that (Andorid 3.2 SDK) and Java 7 installed.

    Here is what is contained in my Eclipse tabs:

    Console:

    package com.bobas;
    
    import android.app.Activity;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import android.widget.TextView;
    
    public class YeauxDudimusActivity extends Activity {
        /** Called when the activity is first created. */   
    @Override    
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {        
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);        
      TextView tv = new TextView(this);        
      tv.setText("Yeaux, Dudimus");        
      setContentView(tv);        
      setContentView(R.layout.main);            
      }
    }

    Have you tried launching the emulator separately first using Android SDK and AVD Manager? Also, can you create a new Android project and have it run on the emulator?

    I don't see anything in your code that would cause a problem, however there is a bug that will give you unexpected results:
    Code:
    @Override    
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {        
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);        
      TextView tv = new TextView(this);        
      tv.setText("Yeaux, Dudimus");        
      setContentView(tv);        
      setContentView(R.layout.main);            
      }
    You are calling setContentView twice. You either need to remove:
    Code:
    setContentView(R.layout.main);
    or add the TextView to your main.xml layout file.
