Can't get past this code challenge...

In this code challenge, I am suppose to connect the text fields to two variables for username and password. I can't see why this code is not right below. Am I missing some syntax?

import "SignupViewController.h"

import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

  • (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {

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

You are creating two new fields in the signup method, but you need to assign them to the properties you created for those fields. You should have created a property called username and another called password. You need to set those properties to the values in the text fields.

- (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {

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