C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Views Using ViewBag

I just can not get it right, could somebody please just take a quick look.

I have even gone on the net to see if I have made som,e spelling errors, I can seem to see the mistake.

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {

            ViewBag.Title = "Super Mario 64";
            ViewBag.Description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
            ViewBag.Characters = new string[]
            {
                "Mario",
                "Princess Peach",
                "Bowser",
                "Toad",
                "Yoshi"
            };


            return View();
        }
    }
}
Detail.cshtml
@{
    Layout = null;

}

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>@ViewBag.Title</h1>

        <h5>Description:</h5>
        <div>@ViewBag.Description</div>

        <h5>Characters:</h5>
        <div>
            <ul>
                @foreach (var character in @ViewBag.Characters)
                {
                    <li>@character</li>
                }
            </ul>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>

You don't need a second "@" in the "foreach" line. The one at the beginning is in effect for the entire line.

thanks, that was it!!!!, Good to know, I can watch for that next time.
