Hi all, I'm trying to implement AdMob in my apps, I followed all the instructions in this post: http://www.basic4ppc.com/android/forum/threads/admob-tutorial-add-ads-to-your-application.7300/
but when I add the line: "Dim AdView1 As AdView" I always get this error: Unknown type AdView...
I added the google-play-services.jar file in the Libraries folder and also the GoogleMaps library but still I get that error...
I read a lot of posts about this problem in the forum but couldn't find anything of any help....
Anyone as any idea of what could I be doing wrong?
Thanks a lot for your help
Massy

use my code
and pay atention on this
Adbox.Initialize2("Ad", "ca-app-pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" , Adbox.SIZE_SMART_BANNER ) <<<<<<<< here


Adbox.SIZE_SMART_BANNER this is important lol


use this
B4X:
Sub Globals
  Private Adbox As AdView
End Sub


Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    Adbox.Initialize2("Ad", "ca-app-pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" , Adbox.SIZE_SMART_BANNER )
    Dim height As Int
    If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize < 6 Then
    If 100%x > 100%y Then height = 32dip Else height = 50dip
    Else
    height = 90dip
    End If
    Activity.AddView(Adbox, 0dip, 100%y - height, 100%x, height)
      Adbox.LoadAd

Nothing... if this can help you I noticed that I begin getting the error just declaring the Dim..
If I only have the "#AdditionalRes: D:\Android\sdk\extras\google\google_play_services\libproject\google-play-services_lib\res, com.google.android.gms" the app run ok, but if I just add "Dim AdView1 As AdView" in sub globals the app crash and give error... and in the device it appears a message saying the application has stopped abnormally

Can you post the error from the logs?

Are you using B4A v3.82?
Hi Erel, I was using an old version of b4a, now I've updated to 3.82 and it keeps giving me the error but it is changed... this is the log:
