Why did you put nameField rather than nameEditText??

I tried nameEditText and it work...I actually don't know why did he change it to nameField.. it makes me much more confuse

my code below

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    private EditText nameEditText;
    private Button startButton;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        nameEditText = findViewById(;
        startButton = findViewById(;

        startButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            public void onClick(View view) {
                String name = nameEditText.getText().toString();
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, name, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
