Hi there!

I am not sure what I did wrong in here, but I am getting an error saying Value of type 'ViewController' has no member 'submit'. So, basically I am getting an error on line self?.submit(answer).

@objc private func promptForAnswer() {
        let ac = UIAlertController(title: "Enter answer", message: nil, preferredStyle: .alert)

        let submitAction = UIAlertAction(title: "Submit", style: .default) { [weak self, weak ac] action in
            guard let answer = ac?.textFields?[0].text else {

        present(ac, animated: true)

Any idea what am I doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance!


Hi! But did you create method submit? There is no such one by default you have to create by yourself. It should be something like this.

func submit(_ answer: String) {
  // your code here



Yes, you are right...I thought it comes with the Apple's API and that it is not a custome method. I guess I stopped the video too early, now I can see that Paul is getting the same error as me.
