Pretty Little Things, Challenge Task 3/3

Now we want to attach the fadeOutAnimation to the ‘statusLabel’ TextView. Set it by using the 'setAnimation()' method of the statusLabel variable. Remember that our fadeOutAnimation is the parameter for the 'setAnimation()' method!

private TextView mAnswerLabel;

TextView statusLabel = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.statusLabel);

AlphaAnimation fadeOutAnimation = new AlphaAnimation (1, 0); fadeOutAnimation.setDuration(2000);


Not Sure what I'm doing here or where I've gone wrong but if anyone could help, that would be great. Thanks.

so that you are using the method on the "statusLabel" variable.
