Hi Jonathan,

username and password are already set properties ("In the signup method, start by capturing the username and password from two UITextField properties: 'usernameField' and 'passwordField'.") so you will have to address them with self like this:

self.username = self.usernameField.text;
self.password = self.passwordField.text;

The complete solution for Challenge task 1 of 4 from "In our view controller below we want to sign up new users for our app. In the signup method, start by capturing the username and password from two UITextField properties: 'usernameField' and 'passwordField'. Store the values in the properties 'username' and 'password'." should be:

#import "SignupViewController.h"
#import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

- (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {
    self.username = self.usernameField.text;
    self.password = self.passwordField.text;    
}

@end

Thank you!
