My "Log.d string" is coming back with an error.

While following the video and adding the Log.d string for the "FunFactsActivity" information, it comes back saying "cannot resolve symbol 'Log'".

you need to add an import statement for the Log class at the top of your activity.

add the following below your other imports

import android.util.Log;

when using Android Studio, use the autcomplete feature to autocomplete class names when you type them out, that way it imports it automatically for you and you dont have to worry about importing it yourself. In this case you simply typed out Log without choosing it from autocomplete, so it did not import it automatically for you. Also I believe if you hover over the word Log on the line giving the error and press alt + enter it should pop up a menu where you can choose to import the class

Yah, I found the fix. Thank you. :-)

Stone Preston : I did that, but still continue to get the "Cannot resolve symbol 'd'" error.
