Creating the Message

Hi. I can' figure out this code challenge from Creating the Message 3/3.

Here is my code below:

public void addNewEvent() { // param 1 = year, param 2 = month, param 3 = day Date date = new GregorianCalendar(2014, 0, 1).getTime();

    ParseObject calendar = new ParseObject("Event");
    calendar.put("eventName", "Birthday party");
    date.put("eventDate", );


It says that i must set the date of the event using the date variable, i got the key as "eventDate" so how should i set the date?

You're so close! The date variable is already set for you a few lines above. You just want to put it on the calendar by passing it in as the second parameter like so:

calendar.put("eventDate", date);

Thanks for your help Katie!. I solved it trying again a few times.

I couldn't get that line of code to work, but I tried


Hope this might help anyone else having trouble on this one.
