String resources can be used throughout an app. In this challenge we want to use a String resource to set the text of a Button. Switch to the strings.xml file and add a new String item named morePuppies with the value "See More Puppies".

CodeChallenge.java
Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
String buttonLabel = getString(R.string.SeeMorePuppies);
loadPuppiesButton.setText("LOAD");
strings.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>

</resources>

Hi there! First, and foremost, you have to add the resource to the XML file given. Take a look:

<string name="morePuppies">See More Puppies</string>

This should be between your <resources> tags in your strings.xml file. Hope this helps! :sparkles:
