Challenge 3 of 3 - What is proper code to retrieve int and set text of TextView? Thanks guys!

I assume it has something to do with parsing the int to a string, but I can't get it.

private int durp;

@Override protected void onRestoreInstanceState(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onRestoreInstanceState(savedInstanceState);

    durp = savedInstanceState.getInt(KEY_USERENTRY);
    mTextView.setText(durp);
}

Thanks guys!

You you need to pass a String to setText(). Try this:

mTextView.setText(String.valueOf(durp));
