Compiled successfully...nothing shows up.


I am getting stuck because It seems like I have cut and paste everything as the video intended, however nothing shows but a grey background. There are no error messages and the project compiled successfully. What could be going wrong?

If you show your complete code, someone may be able to help determine the cause.
A great way to share code is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

I Can't really tell without seeing the code, but you might have forgotten to import your components somewhere.

Chances are you made a simple syntax error. I was having the same issue, so I started the tutorial over from the beginning, (went much faster the second time around), and when I got to this step, everything was working s it should.
