Hello, everyone 👋 I’m trying to setup compose in an existing project and I’m facing the following error:
NoSuchMethod: No Static method setContent
My dependencies:
Copy code
dependencies {
    implementation("androidx.core:core-ktx:1.7.0")
    implementation("androidx.compose.ui:ui:1.1.1")
    implementation("androidx.compose.material:material:1.1.1")
    implementation("androidx.compose.ui:ui-tooling-preview:1.1.1")
    implementation("androidx.lifecycle:lifecycle-runtime-ktx:2.4.1")
    implementation("androidx.activity:activity-compose:1.4.0")

    debugImplementation("androidx.compose.ui:ui-tooling:1.1.1")
    debugImplementation("androidx.compose.ui:ui-test-manifest:1.1.1")
}
Copy code
kotlinVersion = "1.6.21"
gradlePluginVersion = "7.2.1"

Did you add
buildFeatures
block in your gradle setup? https://developer.android.com/jetpack/compose/interop/adding#config-gradle

You're not running the compose compiler plugin in the module that includes the call to
setContent

Copy code
android {
    defaultConfig {
        minSdk = ANDROID_MIN_SDK_VERSION
        compileSdk = ANDROID_COMPILE_SDK_VERSION
        versionCode = System.getenv("VERSION_CODE")?.toIntOrNull() ?: 1
        versionName = PUBLISHING_VERSION
        buildToolsVersion = ANDROID_BUILD_TOOLS_VERSION
    }
    compileOptions {
        sourceCompatibility = VERSION_JAVA
        targetCompatibility = VERSION_JAVA
    }
    sourceSets["main"].java.srcDir("src/main/kotlin")

    kotlinOptions {
        jvmTarget = "1.8"
    }
    buildFeatures {
        compose = true
    }
    composeOptions {
        kotlinCompilerExtensionVersion = "1.1.1"
    }
    packagingOptions {
        resources {
            excludes += "/META-INF/{AL2.0,LGPL2.1}"
        }
    }

If you are loading either the Kotlin or Android Gradle plugins but not both in your
buildSrc
then this can also happen for some non-obvious gradle classpath reasons

That’s my

Adam Powell

Do you have a
buildSrc

Yeah, I have

Adam Powell

Does it load the Kotlin gradle plugin or Android gradle plugin?

I created a new module (which is an app) inside a monolithic project
Yeah, it loads

Adam Powell

06/01/2022, 2:54 PM
Then have it load both plugins in
buildSrc

That’s my buildSrc/build.gradle.kts
Copy code
dependencies {
    api("com.android.tools.build:gradle:7.1.2")
    implementation("com.android.tools.build:gradle-api:7.1.2")
    api("com.android.tools.build:bundletool:1.4.0")

They need to be able to see each other from their classloader for agp to configure the compose compiler plugin with the Kotlin gradle plugin

But, Adam… let me see if I got it I load the classpath for
kotlin gradle plugin
and
android gradle plugin
in the build.gradle.kts (from project root) Now I need to load them inside the
buildSrc/build.gradle.kts
, right?
a

Adam Powell

06/01/2022, 3:23 PM
yes. if you load either of these plugins inside your
buildSrc
Copy code
dependencies {
    implementation("com.android.tools.build:gradle:$androidGradlePluginVersion")
    implementation("org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlinGradlePluginVersion")
then you must load both of them together

Ok, I’ll try it Thank you 🙂
@Adam Powell it worked 🙏 blob smile happy

We are implementing Compose in a project in the company I currently work, I was really excited because it’ll be the first time I’m going to use Compose in a company product. So thank you a lot \o/

I just filed a bug to the documentation to get this added to the page linked above; hopefully I can stop answering this question soon 😅

Cool 🐕 Is it open? Can you share it? So I can also document it in the project

Adam Powell

06/01/2022, 4:29 PM
hmm, doesn't look like it, I'm afraid. The docs pages have a few extra buttons for filing feedback bugs for us when we look at them and that flow files them under an internal component

I think I filed a bug for this wayyyyy back. https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/176079157
I will chat with the Documentation folks so we make it clearer in our Compose documentation.
😭
I definitely opened another bug for this to be documented after it happened to me again, but I remember someone closing it basically saying that its not composes responsibility to let people know about this.
🤔 1
Ill look for it tomorrow. must. sleep.
Oh yeah. Last year. Jim seemed to disuade against it... plus he tagged adam. 😂 Its come full circle. I tried to be a good compose citizen. /shruggie https://kotlinlang.slack.com/archives/CJLTWPH7S/p1623347985410800?thread_ts=1623270940.306300&cid=CJLTWPH7S
