Why is this not working... it works in the app and is exactly how the video goes or am I missing something?

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

CodeChallenge.java
Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
String buttonLabel = "";
Resources resources = getResources();
buttonLabel = resources.getString(R.string.morePuppies);
loadPuppiesButton.setText(buttonLabel);
strings.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
  <string name="morePuppies">See More Puppies</string>
</resources>

Hi. Have you tried calling getString() directly? (without calling getResources() first)

String buttonLabel = getString(R.string.morePuppies);

getString() is a shortcut for getResources.getString()here. Maybe this is what they want here. These challenges tend to only accept a specific solution, even though sometimes others are possible.

No problem, we've all been there :)

Instead of giving buttonLabel value twice you should just give it a value once like this.

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

Even after making this change it still won't pass me. I do not understand as I'm done with the weather app portion, or 90% done and this code works in AS.
