What is the problem

even ı use getString() methods the solver says me don't forget to use getString()

Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
 Resources resources=getResources();
String buttonLabel = resources.getString(R.string.morePuppies);

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <string name="morePuppies">See More Puppies</string>

I think the task is intended to use the shortcut version of getString(). So instead of instantiating the resources variable and calling .getString() on it, just use getString() as is. If you rewatch the video, it's shown and explained around the 2:15 timestamp.

Thanks a lot. Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);

String buttonLabel = getString(R.string.morePuppies); loadPuppiesButton.setText(buttonLabel); İt works.
