In this challenge you are first creating a public class, which you've done, then adding a member variable. You have added a method.

If you just declare a public variable of type String inside the class, then you will have completed the challenge.

public class PictureBook {

    public String mTitle;


That should do it!


thanx steve, you saved me

No problem!
