Hi Shiv,

Any chance you could paste what you've got so far please and try and explain what you are trying to achieve referencing your own code if possible (it's kind of a stab in the dark otherwise)

Thanks Daniel

I did select the ADD CODE option. I tried again, my code is not coming with the question.

Hi Shiv

Just copy and paste you code from your class in question into the forum here. You can format the text and add syntax highlighting by adding three backticks (`) before and after your code.

Thanks Daniel

public Button mThrustButton;
public TextView mTypeLabel;
public EditText mPassengersField;

public Spaceship mSpaceship;

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_landing);

    mThrustButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.thrustButton);
    mTypeLabel = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.typeTextView);
    mPassengersField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.passengersEditText);

    // Add your code here!
}

Here is the question

The LandingActivity interacts with the Spaceship model object we created. Start by setting mSpaceship to a new Spaceship object in the onCreate() method. Use the custom constructor that takes a String parameter, and pass in "FIREFLY" as the parameter.
