How is this answer wrong...?

In our view controller below we want to sign up new users for our app. In the signup method, start by capturing the username and password from two UITextField properties: 'usernameField' and 'passwordField'. Store the values in the properties 'username' and 'password'.

Error: Bummer! Make sure you set both the 'username' and 'password' properties!

NSString *username = self.usernameField.text;
NSString *password = self.passwordField.text;

What is wrong here?

Hi, it may be in brackets or something something : p or just delete the code and re-write it, sometimes it helps.

I actually answered this same question on another thread the other day.

You don't need NSString on them... and the question states that username and password are properties, which means that they are already declared in the header file. So you just need to reference them with self.

self.username = self.usernameField.text;
self.password = self.passwordField.text;
