Next, we want to position the ImageView directly below the EditText. We do this using the layout_below attribute. Add this new attribute to the ImageView and set it equal to the ID of the EditText (use "@id/captionField").

I added the new attribute by adding two lines Line21 android.id="@id/captionField" then line22 android.layout_below ="@id/captionField". I still get an error that the layout_below attribute still needed.Please help with explanation

activity_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent" 
    android:orientation="vertical" >

    <EditText
        android:id="@+id/captionField"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:hint="Enter a caption" />



    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/imageView1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentTOP="true"
        android:src="@drawable/grumpy_cat" 
       android.id="@+id/captionField"
     android.layout_below ="@+id/captionField"/>

</RelativeLayout>

From the ImageView remove the line android.id="@+id/captionField".

Also, android.layout_below ="@+id/captionField" should be android:layout_below ="@id/captionField".
