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

Color

I am changing the background color and it is saying it is incorrect I copied it just like the example

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>

Change "@android:color/#fff092b0" to "#fff092b0". The android prefix should only be used when you're accessing certain specified colors.

Thanks I figured that out the hard way. It was a learning experience.
