Sometimes error messages don’t really do their job and tell you how to rectify them, like this one I found today in Android Studio (v0.4.5). While attempting to add a page indicator for my ViewPager, I got “CirclePageIndicator is not allowed here.”

Way to be ambiguous...

As it turns out, this is less about Mama Android telling you where to put your controls, and more about using the correct namespace when adding controls (I had only copied over this class, not the whole project).

Mind your namespaces!
