"funFactLabel.text" on xcode7

I am running Xcode 7 and it is giving me an error every time I try to type "funFactLabel.text" The error states: UIView doe not have a member named 'text'

Any ideas?

The funFactLabel should be a UILabel not a UIView.

Inside you view controller you should have declared it as such:

@IBOutlet weak var funFactLabel: UILabel!

Your main storyboard should have a label dragged onto it and a link created to the view controller by dragging the connection with your mouse.

I hope that helps!


No problem! Glad it helped! :-)
