TextView and Button are Red Errors

The words TextView and Button are considered Errors, and they are not errors in the Course Video.

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

    //Declare our View variables
    TextView factLabel;
    Button showfactbutton;

You probably have not imported the proper classes yet. Could you try selecting each of the underlined class names and hit Alt+Enter and then select, Import Class. If this doesn't work, you could try doing Build, Clean and/or File, Invalidate Caches/Restart.

Yep! That worked! Thx!

You're welcome. Have fun with Android development.
