Array challenge

I got stuck when I was working on the Array challenge for the blog app in Objective - C. For some reason I am having trouble with the array! I did everything they did in the preceding video.

self.booksArray = [NSArray arrayWithObjects: @"Hamlet", @"King Lear", @"Othello", @"Macbeth", nil];

Hi Kirk,

For this code challenge the variable booksArray doesn't exist yet and the scope self isn't there either as it's only looking for specific code, it's also not executing the code.

Instead you want to assign the new array back to a new variable of type NSArray like the code below.

NSArray *booksArray = [NSArray arrayWithObjects: @"Hamlet", @"King Lear", @"Othello", @"Macbeth", nil];
