Hello,

For part one of this challenge I have the following code:

private class   CustomAsyncTask extends AsyncTask<Object, Void, String>{

}

For part two of this challenge I have this:

private class   CustomAsyncTask extends AsyncTask<Object, Void, String>{
            @Override
        protected String doInBackground(Object... params) {

            return "";
        }  
    }

These pieces of code both work as I tried them, although I did have to watch the video again to get it right :D

Hope this helps,

Paul :)

Paul, Thanks you verry much, I was almost there but sturggle to return a empty string. I saw in your code return """; It makes sense that this make the empty return.

Again: Thank you verry much

Here I'm getting stuck:

private class CustomAsyncTask extends AsyncTask<Object, Void, String> { protected String doInBackground(Object... arg0) {

}
