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

Changing background color of relative layout

I need to change the background color into #fff092b0 from white, but I don't understand why it didn'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're on the right track, but HEX colors are not android:color(s). Give the task another go with that in mind. Maybe take a quick review of the previous video on how the two are coded differently. :)
