If you found that your R (resource) generated class in Android project have errors you will want to force Eclipse to rebuild that class. To force Eclipse to rebuild generated resource class (R), you just need to click on Project->Clean menu, and then select which projects you want to clean. 

In my case rebuilding generated class did not helped because there was error in my XML layout file and class again had the same error. So if you ever have error in your R (resource) generated class, it is better to first check your error log and find where in the layout or resource files you have error. Usual error is wrongly named resource id of control. After you fix that error and save changes error in R class will usually disappear.

Re: Comments about Parking SMS Scheduler
Great app!
It would be very useful to me if support for dual sim phones is added, i.e. choice of sending SMS from secondary or primary sim card.

Re: Creating Android button with image and text using relative layout
In code I am using:

Button bt = new Button(context);
this.setBackgroundDrawable(bt.getBackground());

to set drawable background for button. This way button looks like standard android button.
You can call setBackgroundDrawable() in code to change current button drawable(states).
If you want to set background drawable in xml resource files, then you can sliglty change code to not use this two lines of code if background drawable is allready set.
