factTextView is in red and I dont know why?
I didnt have the factTextView visible when I wrote 'R.id.', it never showed that. When I wrote it anyway, its now permanently stuck in red. Can someone help me with this?
TextView factLabel = findViewById(R.id.factTextView);
only 'factTextView' is in red. :( Help!

First, try to go back to your XML file and make sure that your textview has the same id name. Also, there seems to be a mistake on your code.
factLabel = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.factTextView);
Lastly, make sure its a TextView not something else, for instance, an EditText.
