C# C# Basics (Retired) Perform Converting Strings to Integers

Convert the string in heightInput to an integer using int.Parse. Store the result in a variable named height.

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Please help. Here is my code as of now

string heightInput = "168";

int height = int.Parse(โ€œheightInputโ€);
Height =+168;

Don't put quotes around variable names.

If you put quotes around something, you create a new string with the name of that thing as the contents, not what it represents.

Also, those are not "straight" quotes as used for programming. Those are word-processor style quotes.

And you won't need that line assigning Height (with capital "H") at all.

Great advice, thanks for your help it worked
