mFactLabel.setText - where does that come from? It wasn't in the "Build a simple android app class?

How do i resolve the error i'm getting? (Incomparable types?)

Hi Donovan,

I'm sure you've long since moved on from this issue by now, but hopefully this response helps others who take this class. I also noticed that some of the variables have changed. It appears the code was refactored a bit since the "Build a Simple App" class, but there is an easy fix. In this case just use the variable factTextView instead of mFactLabel and that should resolve any conflicts. :-)

Hey Donovan,

I'm not exactly sure what your problem is but I'll try my best to help you out :) Is it possible that you are trying to set the text of mFactLabel and the value you want to be shown is an integer or another type? If that's the case write that: mFactLabel.setText("" + VARIABLENAME); for VARIABLENAME use the name of the variable you want to be shown.

I hope that was helpful, Patrick :-)
