Android Android Lists and Adapters (2015) Lists with RecyclerViews Using a Layout Manager

Class not found when unmarshalling: Issue with trying to press hour button. App crashes

When launching Stormy and clicking Hourly, the app crashes. Says bad parcel, and I get the above error ** Class not found when unmarshalling:**

Here are all my Hourly Activities.

Hi Wesley,

In your hour class you forgot to set your mSummary in your parcel constructor (don't forget you have to retrieve the values in the same order that you parcel them in).

I hope this helps. If not, please let me know.

Thank you

I greatly appreciate that, I was going nuts. I can't believe I missed that. Thank you!
