Can somebody help me fix this error:use of unresolved identifier pending

enum statusOfTask {

case pending
case doing

case complete


struct tasks {

var description: String

var status: statusOfTask

init(description: String, status: statusOfTask) {

    self.description = "There is no specific task yet"

    self.status = pending

I think it may relate to that second parameter in the initializer of your struct. You only need the first parameter, as all tasks will (in this case) start out 'pending'. Delete statusOfTask parameter and you should be golden. You can still change the status later, the init is just for the... initial stuff.

Jeffrey Rosenthal , nah - it's simpler.

The line should be self.status = statusOfTask.pending instead of just "pending," which isn't telling the compiler anything. It needs to know what "pending" is referring to.
