Part 2 of the CodeChallenge

Hey all,

I am not sure what I am doing wrong with part 2. About out of ideas.

CodeChallenge.java
Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
String buttonLabel = "";
loadPuppiesButton.setText("LOAD");

Resources resources=getResources();
buttonLabel=resources.getString(R.string.morePuppies);
strings.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
  <string name="morePuppies">See More Puppies</string>
</resources>

Hi Christopher,

You have set the morePuppies string resource already. Now we want to use that to assign its value into buttonLabel. You can do this by using the getString() method and passing in the resource id as a parameter. That parameter would look like R.string.morePuppies, the name you set in the first task.

Use the existing line that initialises the buttonLabel string with a blank string. All that looks like:

String buttonLabel = getString(R.string.morePuppies);

I hope that helps,

Steve.
