I followed everything that Pasan did in the video, and I get an error when I press the button. Anyone help?

Please share the code and the error.

My code:

 <p> import UIKit

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var aButton: UIButton!

override func viewDidLoad() {

aButton.setTitle("Press me!", forState: .Normal) }

override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.


 @IBAction func buttonPressed() {
        view.backgroundColor = UIColor.orangeColor()

} </p>

The error: (lldb)
