can anyone help this code is saying cannot resolve symbol 'factTextView'. it is showing red text (Android track)
Hi Thomas. Did you declare your 2 variables at the top of the class (under the class name)?
private TextView factTextView; private Button showFactButton;
If you have, then just paste your code here so we can help you further. Thanks :)

Also, if the red text is for the R.id.factTextView part make sure the id in the layout file is spelled correctly and that there are no errors in the XML.
