Hi everyone,

I'm having trouble with the second part of the challenge,

The label for our app has an IBOutlet called 'quoteLabel' to the THViewController. Within the 'buttonPressed' method assign the following string to the 'quoteLabel' property - 'The road to success is always under construction'.

I have...

(IBAction)buttonPressed { ____.quoteLabel.text = @"The road to success is always under construction"; }

I'm not entirely sure what to put at the blank.

Since quoteLabel is a property the keyword preceding it should always be the keyword self.

Oddly, that didn't work for me. I simply replaced self in the blank but I keep getting "Bummer! You need assign the above quote to the 'text' property of quoteLabel!"

Problem solved Amit, I've figured it out. I believe it was an implementation file I removed or something. Thanks anyway though.
