ok the Log class probably did not get imported the first timeif you did not select the class name from autocomplete the first time and you just typed out Log. you have to choose the class from autocomplete if you want it to get imported for you.

you need capitalize the L in Log since its a class.

Do you mean make it a capital letter, cause I've done that

import android.util.Log;
