At the moment, the name attribute has an empty string assigned to it. 'name' => "".

Instead of that, the challenge wants you to use the get_name method so that the 'name' attribute holds what that method returns.

So, instead of 'name' => "" change this to 'name' => get_name. This means that 'name' willl now hold whatever is returned by the method, get_name.

Make sense?


I did that only I had "get_name", thank you for clarifying it!

Ah, yes. The method name doesn't require the "" surrounding it. Just call it directly as-is.

Hi Victor,

I just posted in your other thread about this challenge.

You want to replace the assignment of the empty string, "", with the call to the get_name method. So, delete the "" and replace with get_name.
