Jetpack Compose Preview not showing

Updated: Sep 2, 2021

It's most common bug in Jetpack Compose.

You can solve this issue by following these simple steps:

  1. Use latest version dependency. I am using 1.0.1 implementation "androidx.compose.ui:ui-tooling:1.0.1"

  2. Add background and systemUi in your preview @Preview(showSystemUi = true, showBackground = true)

  3. Use the latest gradle version classpath ''

  4. Use the latest kotlin version classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:1.5.21"

  5. Run the application after applying these changes.

Note: use latest stable version of Android studio 4.2.2 or Latest beta version 2021.1.1 Canary 7 or above.

Android Studio latest stable version(4.2.2) not stable now. It have some gradle issues.

I recommend use beta version to avoid issues.
