Android fullscreen theme error

I tried to get rid of the action bar on the android layout. I followed the same step as the video. However, I got an error says that,

"Rendering Problems Missing styles. Is the correct theme chosen for this layout? Use the Theme combo box above the layout to choose a different layout, or fix the theme style references."


<!-- Base application theme. -->
<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
    <!-- Customize your theme here. -->

Hey there fadhil!

Can you make sure that you are in fact using the correct theme? If you go to your activity in the Design View, make sure that it says AppTheme at the top here:

If not, be sure to change it to AppTheme! Then, everything should work ok!
