Finally, save this ParseObject in the background and pass in the mSaveCallback member variable.

May u please help ,me i am stuck.

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() {
        public void done(ParseException e) {
            Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Item saved!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

    // Some code omitted!

    public void save() {
      ParseObject mTask .new ParseObject("Task");
      // parseObject.saveInBackground(mSaveCallbck); // duplicate code? 
      String description = mDescriptionField.getText().toString();
      mTask.put("description", description);
      mTask.saveInBackground(mSaveCallbck);  // this is correct but the callback is called mSaveCallback

Hey there!

You were close! There's just a few typos in your code:

ParseObject mTask .new ParseObject("Task");
// You used a . instead of an = here!

// You don't need to save in background yet - delete this on the second line of the save() method.

// Here, mSaveCallbck should be mSaveCallback

These should be all of the issues you had and you should be able to pass the challenge. Hope it helps and if there's anything else, give me a shout :)

Thank u so much.I did not even realise i wrote Callbck instead of Callback until u pointed it out.lol
