    Hey Derek I'm not sure what's wrong I tried to do "ifRoom|withText" at 4:19 and it would only do "ifRoom" and not "withText" i have the correct xmlns: app and so I'm not sure why it's not working :/

    12:00 new DialogInterface.OnClickItemLister() .. what does that mean? In java, are classes able to invoke other classes to create an instance?

    My Dialog only pops up when I replace return super.onCreateDialog(savedInstanceState) by return theDialog.create(). What's going wrong?

    Hi Derek,
    Do you have you recorded series using Android Studio?
    If not, would you consider making it?

    Hey Derek 🙂
    i had a question, in my version of android studio there isn't a "menu" and "main" file. what i need to do?

    The DialogFragment wouldn't work for me. I fixed it by having onCreateDialog(Bundle savedInstanceState) return theDialog.create() instead of super.onCreateDialog(savedInstanceState).

    Hey Derek, your videos are awesome. Great job man and thanks alot!
    I had a question I was hoping you could answer. I am using ubuntu and my current version of android studio looks way different from what you are using. I don't know if that's because of updates or my OS. Do you have any idea?

    Excuse me Derek, but I need help. Most of the folders you have and show I do not have. I am using Linux and don't know how to do some stuff you do because I don't have them. I have no Scr folder and some of the folders you show are in the app folder. Can you help me with this problem?
    Thank you for reading.

    Hey! In the MyDialogFragment class, inside the method onCreateDialog, you probably need to return theDialog.create() , instead of super.onCreate(savedInstanceState), otherwise it just shows a blank Fragment.

    Hi Derek! At 14:16, I know it's inheritance/polymorphism but do I really have to use the superclass or still I can do MyDialogFragment myFragment = new MyDialogFragment(); ? Thanks in advance.

    Hey Derek, im following all the How to Android apps, but sometimes i'm stuck.
    Looks like my Android Studio doesn't have all that yours does. In this video I don't have the res/menu folder. So I created one, but even tho it doesn't auto complete the commands.

    Any idea how to help me?

    Hey Derek Banas, first of all thanks a lot man.
    But I have one question, I am new on programming and I don't get some concepts yet.
    Why you have to use .Builder to create an AlertDialog Object, and why DialogInterface.onClickListener?
    Thanks again
