Add an image to the instance [...]

"Add an image to the instance of UITableViewCell named 'cell' with the previously created 'image' object."

Thats the task at hand. Im on the "UITableViewCell with an image" challenge from "Adapting Data for Display"

I've tried a lot of different code, I even search for some tutorials over at stackoverflow. But I honestly just don't know what to do. I was able to solve the first part of the challenge with this line of code:

// UIImage *image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"placeholder.png"];

And I understood why I had to write that line. But when it comes to adding the 'image' object to 'cell' I'm just lost.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Otto Wichmann,

This task is asking you to assign the image object to the imageView.image property of the UITableView cell object.

For example:

someCell.imageView.image = someImageObject;

I can't believe it was that easy.

I wrote that line of code before but I was adding (@"") to image

cell.imageView.image = @"image";

Thank you David Kaneshiro Jr.
