PFUser challenge not accepting valid code

The following code compiles in Xcode, but the code challenge doesn't like it. Any ideas? I'd really like to progress with this module.

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

    @implementation SignupViewController

    - (IBAction)signup:(id)sender {

    // my additions here

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

    }

    @end

The original question: 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'.

Doof. Thanks. I wonder if it would have been appropriate to include the .h file with the challenge for an extra nudge.
