configureGetButton Tuturorial 3

I am on page 59 of tutorial three. I am creating the function below to change the title of a button. I am getting an error of finding nil. I am confused. getButton is declared with the value of false, and the button “getButton” has a title. Where else can nil be coming from?

func configureGetButton()
{ if updatingLocation {
getButton.setTitle(“Stop”, forState: .Normal)
} else {
getButton.setTitle(“Get My Location” , forState: .Normal)

getButton is an outlet property so it must be connected to the button in the storyboard. If it’s not actually connected (you can see this in the Connections inspector for the button), then getButton will be nil.
