#StackBounty: #android #searchview #androidx SearchView crashes with inflation error (androidx) – resource not found exception

Bounty: 50

I have a SearchView in one of my layouts and get appended crash on some devices. The problem is that the abc_textfield_search_material resource is not found. But I’m not using this resource directly, as my xml layout simply looks like following:

<androidx.appcompat.widget.SearchView
        android:id="@+id/svSearch"
        android:visibility="gone"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:iconifiedByDefault="false"
        android:queryHint="@string/filter"
        app:iconifiedByDefault="false"
        android:paddingBottom="4dp"
        app:queryHint="@string/filter" />

Any ideas how to solve this? This crash happens on rare devices only (less than 1%), most devices simply work. I’m already thinking about changing this to a TextView with a compound drawable instead but maybe there’s a better solution than just avoiding to use a SearchView
