Since DialogFragment is no longer available, what is the alternative to this?

I tried following the teacher and my code shows no error but no alert dialog pop up.

DialogFragment is still available, it's just that you should now use the support version. So you just need to change your import statement, using

import android.support.v4.app.DialogFragment;

instead of

import android.app.DialogFragment

Hope this helps :)

In AlertDialogFragment: Use

import androidx.fragment.app.DialogFragment;

instead of

import android.app.DialogFragment;

And in MainActivity: Use


instead of


Although, you can still use android.app.DialogFragment if you want to, even though it's deprecated.
