Android fragment findViewByID returns null

I have a fragment where I would like to connect the takePhotoButton variable to the button in the fragment_send layout but the findViewById returns null. How can this be solved?

public class SendFragment extends Fragment {

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                         Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    FrameLayout ll = (FrameLayout) inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_send, container, false);

    Button takePhotoButton = (Button)rootView.findViewById(R.id.take_photo);
    takePhotoButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View view) {
            Intent i = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
            i.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, file_uri);
            startActivityForResult(i, 10);
    detail1 = (EditText)rootView.findViewById(R.id.etDetail1);

    return ll;

Change this line

Button takePhotoButton = (Button)rootView.findViewById(R.id.take_photo);


Button takePhotoButton = (Button)ll.findViewById(R.id.take_photo);
