Challenge Task 2 of 2 in Simple Refactoring: Creating a Class Andriod Development

Hi it's me again.

I have an issue with completing task 2 of 2 whereby they are asking

Now add a String member variable named mTitle. Make it public.

I am assuming the answer is as follows:

public class PictureBook { public String mTitle () { } }

Is there anything I'm missing out? Thanks in advance!

The String should be defined as:

public String mTitle;

The (){} ending you added in your code indicates a function (you usually insert behavior inside the curly braces and call it from somewhere else in the code), whereas a String is just a simple variable.


Thanks for the clarification!
