Android Build a Simple Android App Creating the Screen Layout Setting Colors

Can't change from white to DARK PINK I just removed white and put code of dark pink

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:background="@android:color/#fff092b0" >

I copy and pasted the dark pink code insted of white as recommended but it doesn't work

activity_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:background="@android:color/#fff092b0" >

  <TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp"
    android:textColor="@android:color/white"        />

</RelativeLayout>

hey there you will need to delete the "@android:color/" as this is a hard coded color you are going for

Thank you, will try to do this
