Library Butter Knife doesn't work

Hi there,

I have an issue with Butter Knife. I copied Butter Knife library from GitHub and pasted it into build gradle and synced. After that I tried to write a line starting with @InjectView and Android Studio doesn't recognise that. I am really not sure what is the issue as I pasted the library code into dependencies. I am really stuck, reading documentations on android developer source, but no success. Has anyone come across similar issue and is able to advise? Would greatly appreciate.

Kind Regards,

Maks

@InjectView is deprecated. The ButterKnife version used in Ben's videos are of a older version.

Use @Bind isntead of @InjectView. Tell me if it works!

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your answer. It does work. Just tried it. I wish he have mentioned that on the lesson. I was stuck with this issue for two days.

Thank you once again.

Hi Kevin. I think there was a glitch. Now it is working

From what I'm seeing it looks like you also have to replace the ButterKnight.inject() method with ButterKnife.bind()
