Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) User Input Using RelativeLayouts and ImageViews

we want to position the ImageView directly below the EditText. We do this using the layout_below attribute. I am stuck

we want to position the ImageView directly below the EditText. We do this using the layout_below attribute. Add this new attribute to the ImageView and set it equal to the ID of the EditText (use "@id/captionField").

activity_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" >

    <EditText
        android:id="@+id/captionField"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:hint="Enter a caption" />

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/imageView1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
        andriod:layout_below="@id+/captionField"
        android:src="@drawable/grumpy_cat" />

</RelativeLayout>

It's just a simple typo. You reversed the i and o in android: Otherwise it's good. :)

        android:layout_below="@id+/captionField"

Thank you seth
