writing the log anybody to help with a correct answer

Inside the onCreate() method (after the setContentView() call), log the message "Activity created!" using the Log debug method (remember it's just one letter). The 1st parameter should be "TreehouseActivity", but use the TAG variable instead of typing it out a second time. The 2nd parameter is the message.

com/teamtreehouse/TreehouseActivity.java
package com.teamtreehouse;

public class TreehouseActivity extends Activity {

  public static final String TAG = "TreehouseActivity";

  @Override
  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_treehouse);

  }
} log.d.tag "Activitycreated", msg; TreehouseActivity;

A couple of things with the above code.

  • First, your log statement should be on the line after setContentView and before the closing braces.
  • Second, double check the syntax of your Log statement. The Log.d method's signature is, in this case, Log.d(String tag, String msg).

Post back with further questions if you're still stuck.

Happy coding,
Ken

I don't want to just give you the answer outright. ;-)

Here's another hint.

package com.teamtreehouse;

public class TreehouseActivity extends Activity {

  public static final String TAG = "TreehouseActivity";

  @Override
  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_treehouse);
    // LOG STATEMENT GOES HERE
  }
}
