iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift Views and View Controllers IBActions and IBOutlets

This Check your work IDE has bugs.Whats wrong with this?

Please find the error here:

class viewController: UIViewController {

@IBOutlet weak var quoteLabel: UILabel!

@IBAction func quoteButtonPressed() {

    quoteLabel.text = "A stitch in time saves nine"
}

}

//Bummer! You need to set the 'text' attribute of quoteLabel

random_quote.swift
class viewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var quoteLabel: UILabel!

    @IBAction func quoteButtonPressed() {

        self.quoteLabel.text = "A stitch in time saves nine"
    }

}

Remove self

class viewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var quoteLabel: UILabel!

    @IBAction func quoteButtonPressed() {
        //Your code here!
        quoteLabel.text = "A stitch in time saves nine."
    }

}

Tried that. Looks like the tree house IDE is not recognizing the text quoteLabel.... Works in playgrounds too. Tested it. Thanks though! I just don't like having the course incomplete when 99.00 work has been done.
