Bummer: In the 'Detail' method, are you returning a call to the 'Content' method?

What does it want from me? can't seem to find an answer that I get in the previous answers here...

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {
            return new ContentResult()
            {
            Content ="Welcome to the Video Game Detail page!"
            };
        }
    }
}

You've got the return type declared correctly, but you still have these issues:

  • you will be calling the method to get the result, not constructing a new object directly
  • the method you need to call is named Content
  • remember to use the base. prefix on the method
  • passing the argument means putting it inside the parentheses

Also keep in mind that no code following a return statement will ever be executed.
