Getting a compiler error for task 2 of 2: public class PictureBook{ public String mTitle(){ } }

Qustion is as follows: Now add a String field (member variable) named mTitle. Make it public. The compiler is asking for a return statement i have tried setting the return to made up variables or null to no avail. Am i doing something wrong?

I found the solution. Question just wanted the basic string: public String mTitle;

Hi Erick,

In this task you should create a member variable like this:

public String mTitle;

What you were trying to do was to create a method called mTitle what wasn't the point of this exercise.

Jacek.

Thanks so much for replying! i had already found the solution but its great to see that the community is active.
