Hello Mike,

To set the buttonLabel String variable to the new String resource we should use this format which returns the string value associated with a particular resource ID.

String string = getString(R.string.NAME_OF_STRING_RESOURCE);

In the above code snippet R represents the Resources

string identifies the type of the resource in this case String resource

NAME_OF_STRING_RESOURCE is the name of String resource in this case morePuppies

See the below code snippet on how to approach this challenge and let us know.

Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
String buttonLabel = getString(R.string.morePuppies);
loadPuppiesButton.setText("LOAD");
