C# C# Objects Inheritance Custom Exceptions

isn't this right for add a constructor to an exception?

I've tried this two times with the base(message) and without but neither are working and I think the constructor for the TooBigException is right but I might be wrong can anyone see whats wrong with this code?

TooBigException.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
       class TooBigException : System.Exception
    {
        public TooBigException(string message) : base(message)
        {
        }
    }

If the code you have looks exactly like that, you're missing a closing curly brace at the end, to complete the namespace block.
