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'.

import "SignupViewController.h"

import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

  • (IBAction)signup:(id)sender { self.usernameField.text = @"username"; //add this line self.passwordField.text = @"password"; //add this line }


I add two lines , but no work ,Please tell me what's wrong

The description says to add the usernameField value into the username *property*. That means that there's a property declared somewhere that isn't shown, but mentioned.

You have to set the usernameField and passwordField text values to the username and password properties that have been declared, which would result in this:

- (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {
    self.username = self.usernameField.text; // assigns usernameField text to username property
    self.password = self.passwordField.text; // assigns passwordField text to password property
