I'm a noob trying to get into ANDROID app development. I'm using ANDROID STUDIO 3.3 on WINDOWS 10.

I'm just starting out a new project and in the layout view of my button, I keep getting this error:

@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior is marked as private in com.android.support:design The error says to change from private to public, but there is a fix. I have researched this and there is a fix on GITHUB, which I downloaded. It has to do with material components android.

So...where do I install this update? I'm looking at my ANDROID3.3 folder, but I can't make out where to overwrite the existing folder.

Thanks for any help.enter image description here


To do direct changes you need to download the Android sources!

Try to include next line into build.gradle (Module: app) script:

implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0'

I think you can remove that after you get next Android SDK release (and then return to use new AndroidX library version).

  • Thx for the help. I've have looked at build.gradle and located several implementations. – DATAfiend Jan 23 at 4:01
