Hello there,
I am trying to learn android application development through one of the online tutorials .I am stuck at a point and since,both java and android are new for me I can't figure out how to get out of it.Here's the code to my Startingpoint.java:
Code:
 
public class Startingpoint extends Activity {
int counter;
Button add,sub;
TextView display;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
        counter=0;
        add=(Button)findViewById(R.id.bAdd);
        sub=(Button)findViewById(R.id.bSub);
        display=(TextView)findViewById(R.id.display);
        add.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                        
                        @Override
                        public void onClick(View v) {
                                counter++;
                                display.setText("Your total is " + counter);
                                
                        }
                });
        sub.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                        
                        @Override
                        public void onClick(View v) {
                                counter--;
                                display.setText("Your total is" + counter);
                                
                        }
                });
    }
 
}
The following are the contents within the LineaLlayout in my main.xml file:
Code:
    <TextView 
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@string/result"
        android:textSize="25sp"
        android:layout_gravity="fill_horizontal"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:id="@+id/display"
    />
    <Button
        android:layout_width="250dp"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@string/bAdd"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:gravity="center"
		android:id="@+id/bAdd"    
    />
    <Button
        android:layout_width="250dp"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@string/bSub"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:id="@+id/bSub"
    />
And this is what the logcat has to say :

Being inexperienced in java , I could not figure out what's wrong with the code.May be the exception is due to my add,sub and display being null but I am not sure.Please help me figure out what's wrong with my code and how to deal with it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
