Chanllenge Task 3 of 4 not working

AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);

This is correct as it worked perfectly on my phone but the emulator states that there is an error, any idea?

AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
builder.setTitle( this.getString( R.string.dialog_title ) );
builder.setMessage( this.getString( R.string.dialog_message ) );

This is the answer even though I was not taught to use this.toString(), also, we are told to use R.string even though xml file is strings.xml. Please fix this treehouse. Hope this helps someone.
