I didn't understand where you put the code for classes and why? Video just skips to blank screen without any context.

Video states how to fix errors that we may see when trying to reference our button view but then just skips to another screen with pre-written code. So im confused on if we are to copy this code and if so where do we put this code and exacty what is it doing? The code im referring to is the "class view" code.

i think it figured out why i was getting the initial error to begin with. i was placing the statement to reference the button code to xml in between the second-to-last curly brace and the last curly brace. now i not pulling an error and no needs follow the issue paths
