Smoke appearing as grey cube?

Hi, I’ve recently started to experiment with Quick smoke, it appears fine within solid view but when I switch to rendered view the smoke disappears and is just replaced by a grey cube in it’s place. I would link the file but since I’m a new user it’s not letting me. Does anyone have a solution to this and sorry for the lack of details as I really can’t figure out what’s going wrong with this

What is the render engine?

Thanks for pointing me towards this, here it is:

As for the engine I’m currently using Cycles Render

You need to give a material to the domain.
Just a ‘Principled Volume’ plugged to the Volume socket of the Material Output node should do the trick.

Sorry to say but it hasn’t worked, updated to 2.8 to get the Principled Volume but it doesn’t seem like it’s changed

It’s working here… in 2.79!

Thank you Secrop, with this picture I realised my mistake, I didn’t unplug the diffuse BSDF from the surface node, Thanks for all of the help, I wish you well and I hope I stop making dumb mistakes haha
