Customizing the Action Bar - Challenge Task 1 of 2

Hi All - I must be missing something from the question or the code. The below code keeps giving me a 'Java 28: Incompatible Types' error. Any insight or advice into what could be going wrong is much appreciated!

    for (int i = 0; i < pagerAdapter.getCount(); i++) {
        ActionBar.Tab tab = mActionBar.newTab();
        tab.setTabListener(this);
        tab = tab.setText(pagerAdapter.getPageTitle(i)); 
        mActionBar.addTab(tab);
    }

The setText() method is a void type, which means you can't set it to the tab variable like you have. You simply need to call it on its own.
