Build a Self-Destructing iOS

I'm having some problems with a challenge. The chapter is in "Using Parse.com as a Backend and Adding Users" and the challenge is "Signing Up New Users Part 2 - PFUser"

In our view controller below we want to sign up new users for our app. In the signup method, start by capturing the username and password from two UITextField properties: 'usernameField' and 'passwordField'. Store the values in the properties 'username' and 'password'.

I just answer with:

NSString *username = self.usernameField.text;
NSString *password = self.passwordField.text;

Where am i doing wrong?

The challenge is asking you to store the values in properties called 'username' and 'password'. So you need not create local variables just use the existing properties.

self.username = self.usernameField.text;
self.password = self.passwordField.text;
