Lint Error Window Android

First lets see what Lint is !

    Android Lint is a new tool introduced in ADT 16 which scans Android project sources for potential bugs.

    Some of the Errors that Lint looks for :

    > Missing or Unused translations (language tags like af, am, ar, bg)
    > Layout performance problems (all the issues the old layoutopt tool used to find, and more)
    > Unused resources
    > Inconsistent array sizes
    > Hardcoded Strings
    > Missing contentDescription
    > Accessibility and internationalisation problems
    > Problems related to Icon problems such as missing densities, duplicate icons, wrong sizes
    > Usability problems (like not specifying an input type on a text field)
    > Manifest errors

    and more ....

Each Lint error is put into certain category like : Correctness, Correctness:Message, Security, Performance e.t.c

Solution :

Look for the lint error type and try to fix it. If you think that it is not a issue, then you can suppress the error (fatal error) to a warning, information or ignore type :

Example :

If you get an error like "app_name" is not translated in "af" (Afrikaans), "am" (Amharic), "ar" (Arabic) ... which is to Category : Correctness:Message, its because you have not translated the string values to these languages. By default it is a Lint Fatal error, if you do not want to translate you app to these languages,

Go to Menu : Eclipse -> Preferences ( on Mac OS X ) or Menu : Window -> Preferences (on Windows)

Lint Error Checking under Android Preferences

In Preferences Goto : Android -> Lint Error Checking and look for ExtraTranslation under Category : Correctness:Message, and change its type from Fatal to Warning.

Similarly fix all the issues and you would be able to export your .apk file.
