Hi Jonathan,

First, it looks like you deleted the code from Task #1?

As for this question, #fff092b0 is a Hex color and not and Android system color. So, you cannot have @android:color/. All you need is the Hex code.

Hope this helps. :) :dizzy:

iam trying all that , bt still its saying, task 1 nolonger pass

Did you put back in the code that is missing for Task one?

If so, you'll need to post your new code you are trying, so we can help. Please refer to the Markdown Cheatsheet above the post button for instructions on how to properly post code in the Community, or have a quick look at this Video on posting code.
