iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift 2.0 View Controllers and Views Creating IBOutlets

I am lost on this challenge here. Can you help me?

I do not get what is wrong with my code.

ViewController.swift
class ViewController: UIViewController {

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
        @IBOutlet weak var textLabel: UILabel!
    }

    override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated
    }

}

Hi Bernt

You need to place the IBOutlet right after the class declaration and before the method viewDidLoad.

Like this:

class ViewController: UIViewController {

@IBOutlet weak var textLabel: UILabel!

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
    }

    override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated
    }

}

Thank you very much! Bernt
