code challenge: getting description from EditText member value

I can't figure out how to do this. Here's what I have:

import android.app.Activity; import android.widget.EditText; import android.widget.Toast; import com.parse.ParseException; import com.parse.ParseObject; import com.parse.SaveCallback;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

protected EditText mDescriptionField;

protected SaveCallback mSaveCallback = new SaveCallback() {
    @Override
    public void done(ParseException e) {
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Item saved!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    }
};

ParseObject task = new ParseObject("Task");
String description = mDescriptionField.getText().toString();

public void save() {

}

}

Hi not sure if you have it figured now or not. You only need to move your code into the save() method, it is otherwise correct.
