iOS Object-Oriented Swift 2.0 Complex Data Structures Adding Instance Methods

Let's use the struct to create an instance of Person and assign it to a constant named aPerson. Assign any values you want to the first and last name properties.

Once you have an instance, call the instance method and assign the full name to a constant named fullName.

How come this isn't working? Playground shows no errors.

struct Person { let firstName: String let lastName: String

func getFullName() -> (String){
    return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
}

}

let aPerson = Person(firstName:"Tim", lastName:"Cook") let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

structs.swift
struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String
    func getFullName() -> (String){
        return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
    }
}

let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Tim", lastName: "Cook") 
let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

Hi Ge,

Looks like a syntax/compiling issue. You'll just want to remove the parentheses that are around String.

You would replace:

    func getFullName() -> (String){

with:

    func getFullName() -> String{

Hope this helps!

I didn't even realized that tiny part. Thank you so much!
