Hello can you please help me with this task 2 of 5 in Java

In StringTest.java add a String variable named 'label' before the call to setText(). Use the getString(int id) method to set 'label' to the value you just added in strings.xml. The id will begin with 'R.string'.

String[] phoneNumberLabels = { "-home", "-work", "-mobile" };

Button saveButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.saveButton);

String label = getString(R.String.saveLabel);

saveButton.setText("SAVE");

you are probably getting a syntax error, you need to double check your code:

String label = getString(R.string.saveLabel);

you were almost there but you had 'R.String' when it should be 'R.string'

Haha! You are right I was getting a syntax error. I had a long day yesterday I was doing so well with my learning and then suddenly I was stuck.. Thank you very much!!
