Thanks for the information. I was able to discover that adding the namespace wasn't necessary in my xml file because I was not setting an ad size. That did solve my issue but lead to another issue. I am using InteliJ and in the xml layout preview does not show where the ad is in the layout but it does list it as a component. I am not sure how I can view it to place it as desired in my layout
Hi ez4nick, To test the layout in the intellij in design mode you could set background color and hard code the layout_width and layout_height according to the values you are mentioning in the Amazon:adSize. e.g. Please remove the background and hard code when you are sure how it would look like with the real ad display. Good to know that your older problem is solved.
