How to update a TextView using a String variable?

i do not understand how to use a getter method to update a text view...this is as far as i could go...

LandingActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;

public class LandingActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public Button thrustButton;
    public TextView typeLabel;
    public EditText passengersField;

    public Spaceship spaceship;

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_landing);

        thrustButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.thrustButton);
        typeLabel = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.typeTextView);
        passengersField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.passengersEditText);

        // Add your code here!
        spaceship = new Spaceship("FIREFLY");
          typeLabel = typeLabel.setText(spaceship.getShipType());


    }
}
Spaceship.java
public class Spaceship {
    private String shipType;
    private int numPassengers = 0;

    public String getShipType() {
      return shipType;
    }

    public void setShipType(String shipType) {
      this.shipType = shipType;
    }

    public int getNumPassengers() {
      return numPassengers;
    }

    public void setNumPassengers(int numPassengers) {
      this.numPassengers = numPassengers;
    }

    public Spaceship() {
      shipType = "SHUTTLE";
    }

    public Spaceship(String shipType) {
      this.shipType = shipType;
    }
}

You do not need to assign it to the typeLable variable.

Write this

typeLabel.setText(spaceship.getShipType());

Instead of

typeLabel = typeLabel.setText(spaceship.getShipType());

thanks a lot
