How do I fix this code in C#?

using System; using System.IO;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges { public class Program { public static void Main(string[] arg) {

    }

    static string ParseWeatherForecast(string[] values)
        {
            var  weatherForecast = new WeatherForecast();
            //string values = line.Split(',');
            weatherForecast.WeatherStationId = DateTime.Parse(values[0]);
            DateTime.TryParse(values[0], out weatherForecast)

             return weatherForecast;
        }

}

}

But if you want to use TryParse on the value, you might want to do that before the assignment, and use the value it produced in the assignment. Also, you might want to wrap the whole thing in an if condition so that the assignment is only done when the TryParse is successful. Something like this:

            var mydate = new DateTime();
            if (DateTime.TryParse(values[0], out mydate)} {
                weatherForecast.WeatherStationId = mydate;
            }

Thanks Steven, here is the question:

Create a static method named ParseWeatherForecast that takes a string[] parameter named values and returns a WeatherForecast. Instantiate a WeatherForecast variable named weatherForecast and assign the appropriate value in the values array to the WeatherStationId property. Use the sample data shown in WeatherForecast.cs to determine which value in the array is the WeatherStationId. Don't forget to return the weatherForecast in the new method!
