I am new in solidity and trying some small code however I am getting error which I could not find.

I am trying below code

pragma solidity >=0.4.0 <0.6.0;

contract property {

    uint public value;
    string public location;
    //address public owner
    constructor(uint  _value, string _location) public {
          value = _value;
          location = _location;          

    function setval(uint _value) public{
        value = _value;


function getloc1() public pure returns(memory string) {,<--- getting error here
    return location;


ParserError: Expected type name
function getloc1() public pure returns(memory string) {

I think you meant string memory, not memory string.

  • Thanks@smarx to edit my question, I will take care next time. Also the error has been remove from line 18 however new error come which is in line 8 constructor(uint _value, string _location) public as TypeError: Data location must be "memory" for parameter in function, but none was given. constructor(uint _value, string _location) public { ^--------------^ – Abhijeet Samanta Dec 17 '18 at 8:00
