Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Basic Android Programming Accessing Views in Code

TextView factLabel = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.factTextView); Button showFactButton;

I'm using the latest Android Studio Darcula. The blank app starts with a "toolbar" I erased the code for the toolbar the problem is the autofill feature doesn't seem to work like it used to and I'm left with a sqiggly red line under fact text view. I also get the gradle build errors Error:(23, 57) error: cannot find symbol variable factTextView


Error:Execution failed for task ':app:compileDebugJavaWithJavac'.

Compilation failed; see the compiler error output for details.

Error during Sync: Local path doesn't exist. 1:03:03 AM Unexpected Error Local path doesn't exist. Local path doesn't exist. The project may need to be synced with Gradle files. Sync Project with Gradle files

what does it mean local path doesn't exist? I put JAVA_HOME as a system variable. Is that the problem. Should I click on Sync Project with Gradle files? I did this excersize a couple months ago and didnot run in to this issue however this is probably a newer edition and I didn't choose Darcula before.
