[SOLVED]When i try to find to type key_name it says it dont exists.

Hi, When we try assign the key_name i get an error which says it dont exists but i declare this variable in the string.xml file.. : String key = resources.getString(R.string.key_name)

this is the picture of the mainActivity: https://gyazo.com/e85680e54014899b1aa77ec4cac18ee8

strings.xml file: https://gyazo.com/cb87c84dadda3f4a2c4788f549239620

I dont understand why i cant get a refernce of it, when i type R.string if i type dot i get the refernce of app_name...

Hi noob developer. I'm glad you sorted it out. The scary red R is quite common I'm afraid. There are a few solutions (after making sure the problem is not in your resource file):

  • Build > Rebuild Project
  • File > Sync Project with Gradle
  • File > Invalidate Caches / Restart
  • Restart (as you did)

Hope that helps :)
