I am following Google's documentation to implement Google+ Sign In feature into an app.

https://developers.google.com/+/mobile/android/getting-started

I followed each step according to the guide but got stuck in an error generated by the GoogleApiClient.Builder , I searched thoroughly but got no result. Please help me sort it out. Thank you.

Error code:

    mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
            .addConnectionCallbacks(this)
            .addOnConnectionFailedListener(this).addApi(Plus.API, null)
            .addScope(Plus.SCOPE_PLUS_LOGIN).build();

Error Message :

   The method addConnectionCallbacks(GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks) in the type 
   GoogleApiClient.Builder is not applicable for the arguments (MainActivity)

Complete MainActivity.java code :

        }
    }
}

public void onConnectionSuspended(int cause) {
    mGoogleApiClient.connect();
}

    }

In this code if I comment out .addConnectionCallbacks and .addOnConnectionFailedListener , then the error goes away. The error seems to be related with their arguments.

    mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
        //  .addConnectionCallbacks(this)
        //  .addOnConnectionFailedListener(this)
            .addApi(Plus.API, null)
            .addScope(Plus.SCOPE_PLUS_LOGIN).build();

    • Taha, I had the same problem and came up with the same solution you mentioned above. Are you using Android Studio? If so, were you able to successfully do a G+ Sign In?
      • 1
    • I was using ADT-Bundle, and yes it did Log-in. I think it required to have G+ app installed and logged-in in to your application's device

I see in their documentation where they clearly instruct you to include this import:

import com.google.android.gms.common.GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks;

However, the error being thrown is expecting a different class than GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks, it's asking for GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks. Try changing your implements to use the more-qualified class name. That looks to be the only possible thing throwing the code for a loop and without the explicit qualified classname, it will default to the directly imported class name.

It's always tougher when you have to question the manual.

Edit: I mean a change like this:

public class MainActivity 
    extends ActionBarActivity 
    implements GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks,
               GoogleApiClient.OnConnectionFailedListener {

    • thanks for this fix. you'd think google would test their own code. every step of implementing google play services is requiring stack overflow research to fix weird errors. I hope someday to get it fully implemented.

    • Michael, I'm glad I'm not the only one getting tripped by the documentation. Hardly any of their samples run without extensive fixes.

I too faced the same problem, i resolved by doing the following things.

import the right ConnectionCallbacks.

here is my code:

import android.content.Context;
import android.os.Bundle;

import com.google.android.gms.common.ConnectionResult;
import com.google.android.gms.common.api.GoogleApiClient;
import com.google.android.gms.drive.Drive;

public class GplusLogin implements
    GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks,
    GoogleApiClient.OnConnectionFailedListener {
GoogleApiClient mGoogleApiClient;
GplusLogin(Context context){

    mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(context)
            .addApi(Drive.API)
            .addScope(Drive.SCOPE_FILE)
            .addConnectionCallbacks((GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks) context)
            .addOnConnectionFailedListener(this)
            .build();
}

@Override
public void onConnected(Bundle bundle) {

}

@Override
public void onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult connectionResult) {

}

@Override
public void onConnectionSuspended(int i) {

}
}

    • Thanks, I had the same problem. I had only one (correct) ConnectionCallbacks imported, but it just crashed at .addConnectionCallbacks until I explicitly cast the context to (GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks). I was using it in a Service rather than an ACtivity, but they both extend Context anyway so not sure why it should matter.
