Why won't this compile?

The preview shows no compiler errors.

// Example of UIBarButtonItem instance
// let someButton = UIBarButtonItem(title: "A Title", style: .plain, target: nil, action: nil)

enum BarButton {
    case done(title: String)
    case edit(title: String)

    func button()->UIBarButtonItem {
        switch self {
      case .done(let title):
        return UIBarButtonItem(title: title, style: UIBarButtonItemStyle.done, target: nil, action: nil)
      case .edit(let title):
        return UIBarButtonItem(title: title, style: UIBarButtonItemStyle.plain, target: nil, action: nil)

let done = BarButton.done(title: "Save")
let button = done.button

Hi Clark,

Your problem is on your very last line. You are assigning the button method to the button constant when you should be assigning the result of calling the method to your constant button.
