code problem

I have already asked this question before and the answer was useless. Here is my best guess:

CodeChallenge.cs
string heightInput = "168";
int.Parse height = heightInput;

Here's a few hints:

  • the "int.Parse" needs to be on the right side of the assignment
  • since "height" is a new variable it should be preceded by a type
  • to invoke a function or method (such as "int.Parse"), the name must be followed by parentheses
  • any argument you wish to give to the method goes inside the parentheses
