C# C# Objects Inheritance Custom Exceptions

Add a constructor to the TooBigException

Aren't supposed to add a constructor like this? I don't get why it keeps telling me to add a constructor when I did

TooBigException.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class TooBigException : System.Exception
    {
        public TooBigException(String message): base(String message)
        {

        }

    }

}

You're close, but:

  • the reference to "base" should pass an argument to it instead of declaring a parameter
  • the constructor parameter should be a "string" (little "s") instead of "String"
