iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift 2.0 Getting Started with iOS Development Swift Recap Part 1

Not sure how I can pass the Tag into another structure and make it work with an instance?

Not sure how I can pass the Tag into another structure and make it work with an instance?

struct Tag {
    let name: String
struct Post {
    var title: String
    var author: String
    var tag: Tag


let firstPost = Post(title: "title", author: "author", tag: "name")

The first step is to create the member variables, which you did. Then you need to create the function the challenge asked for: description(), which takes no parameters, hence the empty parentheses, but does return a String, hence the -> String part. Inside the function you need to write a statement that uses String interpolation and returns that statement when the description() method is called.

struct Post {
    let title: String
    let author: String
    let tag: Tag

    func description() -> String {
        return "\(title) by \(author). Filed under \(tag.name)"

let tag = Tag(name: "swift")
let firstPost = Post(title: "iOS Development", author: "Apple", tag: tag)

let postDescription = firstPost.description()

Note that since the tag member property is of type Tag, you need to create a Tag object, and then use that object when creating a Post object (firstPost).

Thank you! I actually figured it out and am now stuck on the next challenge trying to override a function..

There's a problem with that challenge. The apostrophe in I'm makes everything you enter look like a comment. But the editor will still take your work. However, it's nicer when you remove it. Re the challenge, here's some help if you want it (spoiler alert!!):

class Robot: Machine {
    override func move (direction: String) {
        switch direction {
        case "Up":
        case "Down":
        case "Left":
        case "Right":
        default: break
