Am not understanding this question

This question is not clear to me, am not sure what the question requires

import android.app.Activity;
import android.util.Log;
import com.parse.ParseUser;
import com.parse.ParseException;
import com.parse.SignUpCallback;

public class SignUpActivity extends Activity {

    public static final String TAG = SignUpActivity.class.getSimpleName();

    protected SignUpCallback mSignUpCallback = new SignUpCallback() {
        public void done(ParseException e) {


    // onCreate() and other code has been omitted

    protected void signUp(String username, String password) {
      ParseUser newUser=new ParseUser();

You've got the user set up with a username and password - that all looks fine.

Next up, you need to use the callback that's already declared and call the signUpInBackground method:

    protected void signUp(String username, String password) {
      ParseUser newUser = new ParseUser();

Next, you need to log the error inside the done() method:

        public void done(ParseException e) {
          if(e == null){
           // success! 
          } else {
            Log.e(TAG, "ERROR");

That should get you through it.


Thanks Steve, that solved it
