Ah, that's a tough one to see.

In the line:

mStartButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener()); {

You have an extra ");"

The line should be:

mStartButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

Are you sure? Haha.

how about the (View v) characters, the characters 'v' can't be resolved.

I would make the change I suggested first. To me it seems as though 'v' cannot be resolved since you are ending that statement early because of the extra ");"

Go ahead and try it... if it doesn't work, we'll figure something else out. :P

Hi,

Could you add the rest of the code to your onClick method? It's hard to tell what's going on without that.

Hello, the code is:

import android.content.Intent;

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

private EditText mNameField;
private Button mStartButton;



@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    mNameField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.nameEditText);
    mStartButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.startButton);

    mStartButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener()); {
        @Override
            public void onClick (View v){ 
            String name = mNameField.getText().toString();
            startStory();

        }
    });
}

The Log Cat give is :

Error:(31, 32) error: ';' expected Error:(31, 40) error: ';' expected Error:(36, 10) error: illegal start of expression Error:Execution failed for task ':app:compileDebugJava'.

Compilation failed; see the compiler error output for details.
