Kevin contacted us through email and I answered him there, so I am posting it in here, too, for future reference. :)

Sorry you're having trouble! One thing that might be causing the problem is if your method name is mistyped. In your email you have "findViewByid", but the "I" in "Id" needs to be capitalized. Something like that could be preventing the Quick Fix from being generated.

If your method is correct, what happens if you add the cast manually? All you need to do is type (Button) or (TextView) in front of findViewById (depending on which you are trying to get, of course).

Here's an example: mAnswerLabel = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView1);
