Shake Detector error in MainActivity.java

I know this problem has come up before, but searching the forums, I have not found the answer that my app would be satisfied with.

Ever since adding the code for the shake detector, I've had a red wavy line under this block of code starting from new ShakeDetector:

mSensorManager = (SensorManager) getSystemService(SENSOR_SERVICE); mAccelerometer = mSensorManager.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_ACCELEROMETER); mShakeDetector = new ShakeDetector(new OnShakeListener() {

        public void onShake() {



I tried changing the Java settings in the project properties like someone suggested, but no luck.

The intellisense gives me two options: Change constructor 'ShakeDetector(OnShakeListener)' to 'ShakeDetector(OnShakeListener)' OR Create constructor 'ShakeDetector(OnShakeListener)'

Please tell me there's an easy fix...

Hi Ben! In the end I managed to figure it out after all. :).
