Attempt to invoke virtual method ‘android.graphics.drawable.Drawable React Native Error Fix

Last Updated on August 28, 2019.

Sometimes, your react native project throws unexpected errors for no reasons. You might be building your app without problems yesterday but not today. Yes, react native is just like that. I faced the following react native error while running one of my react native projects.

attempt to invoke virtual method

In words, it says Attempt to invoke virtual method ‘android.graphics.drawable.Drawable android.graphics.drawable.Drawable $ConstantState.newDrawable(android.content.res.Resources)’ on a null object reference. Yeah, as the error indicates it happens only on Android devices.

This drove me crazy and I ended up at this GitHub issue. And I got the fix too. I cleared the app data of my installed app and re-run the project solved this particular react native issue.
