Read through multiple answers, it still gives this same error

I'm getting an error of "make sure you assign the results of the expression to a constant named doneButton", but in the description, it doesn't states that we need to assign the results to a doneButton variable. I have tried both done and doneButton, but nothing seems to work. I'm assuming team tree house needs to update the task.


enum BarButton {
    case done(title: String)
    case edit(title: String)

    func button() -> UIBarButtonItem {
      switch self {
        case .done(let title):
          return UIBarButtonItem(title: title, style: .done, target: nil, action: nil)
        case .edit(let title):
          return UIBarButtonItem(title: title, style: .plain, target: nil, action: nil)

let done = BarButton.done(title: "Save")
let done = done.button()

Hi there, Shawn Tsou ! You are so incredibly close here. In fact, you're only off by one word. This bummer! message is a bit odd, I know. But that could be because your code doesn't compile anymore. You are re-declaring an already declared variable named done. And while the Bummer! message says doneButton, the instructions say that the constant should be named button and that is accurate. Take a look at the last line, which is the only part you're missing:

let button = done.button()

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thank you so much, Jennifer. I figured the bug after a short walk in the end. I guess I was just too tired / frustrated to realize that. XD
