iOS Build a Self-Destructing Message iPhone App Using Parse.com as a Backend and Adding Users Signing Up New Users: Part 2 (PFUser)

Using Parse stage 2 - Challenge task 1 of 4 - whats wrong?

I am getting the following message when I try to submit the code below. Unless I am nuts I think something is wrong with the routine that checks the answer =)

Bummer! Make sure you set both the 'username' and 'password' properties!

import "SignupViewController.h"

import <Parse/Parse.h>

@implementation SignupViewController

  • (IBAction)signup:(id)sender { NSString *username = self.usernameField.text; NSString *password = self.passwordField.text; }

"start by capturing the username and password from two UITextField properties: 'usernameField' and 'passwordField'. Store the values in the properties 'username' and 'password'."

There isnt anything wrong with the routine, its just the challenge engine is very specific about what passes. you created two NSString objects named username and password and stored the values of the textfields in those. You need to use the properties username and password and store the values of the textfields in those properties, not two string objects you created yourself. the code challenge engine is very picky so you have to be sure you follow the directions very closely, or else it wont pass.

You are right... thanks for the quick response.
