[SOLVED] Another tricky one...changing button color in navigation bar

I am referring to this code challenge :http://teamtreehouse.com/library/styling-the-navigation-bar Here's the question : Now we want to change the color of the text of our navigation bar buttons to white. Use the appearance proxy to change the color using [UIColor whiteColor].

And now my code which needs to be debugged :

#import "AppDelegate.h"

@implementation AppDelegate

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
    // Customize the nav bar
    UIImage *backgroundImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"navBarBackground"];
[[UINavigationBar appearance] setBarTintColor:[UIColor redColor]];
   [[UINavigationBar appearance] setBackgroundImage:backgroundImage forBarMetrics:UIBarMetricsDefault];
[[UIBarButtonItem appearance] setBarButtonItemColor:[UIColor whiteColor]];


    return YES;
}

@end

try something like this:

        [[UINavigationBar appearance] setBarTintColor:[UIColor redColor]];
    [[UINavigationBar appearance] setBackgroundImage:backgroundImage forBarMetrics:UIBarMetricsDefault];
    [[UINavigationBar appearance] setTintColor:[UIColor whiteColor]];

EDIT As far as I can tell, the code I wrote is the same as you already have - but I took all 3 challenges now without problems

EDIT 2 It was very close but not entirely. Your last line ;)

Thanks ! I guess i tried something too complicated for the last question...I can't believe it was that easy ! Very subtle question !
