Android – “No resource found that matches the given name (at ‘icon’ with value”

Have quite a strange problem

below is my menu activity_action_bar_main.xml and it complains on the

android:icon="@android:drawable/ic_action_view_as_list"

row

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" 
    >

    <item
        android:id="@+id/menu_settings"
        android:orderInCategory="100"
        android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
        android:title="Action Bar1"
        android:icon="@android:drawable/ic_action_view_as_list"/> 

</menu>

And it complains on my icon

[2012-11-15 02:38:53 - TabsimpleActionBar] W/ResourceType( 3908): Bad XML block: header size 789 or total size 0 is larger than data size 0
[2012-11-15 02:38:53 - TabsimpleActionBar] C:\Users\djzingo\workspace1\TabsimpleActionBar\res\menu\activity_action_bar_main.xml:4: error: Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'icon' with value '@android:drawable/ic_action_view_as_list').

But I use it elsewhere in my code and it shows up as it should so I now that it is in place.

You have any suggestions why it works when I remove the android:icon="@android:drawable/ic_action_view_as_list" line but get BadXML block when I add the icon to the xml file?

Solution to answer:

I think this drawable is not part of the android drawable, so try

android:icon="@drawable/ic_action_view_as_list"

instead.
