Keep getting errors when compiling favoriteThings.length ..not sure what I'm doing wrong here

I keep getting errors when compiling the favoriteThings.length . I'm not sure where I'm going wrong here. Here's my code:

csharp> string[] favoriteThings = new string[3]{"sunshine", "presents", "babies"
};                                                                              
csharp> favoriteThings                                                          
{ "sunshine", "presents", "babies" }                                            
csharp> favoriteThings.length                                                   
(1,17): error CS1061: Type `string[]' does not contain a definition for `length'
 and no extension method `length' of type `string[]' could be found. Are you mis
sing an assembly reference?                                                     
/usr/lib/mono/4.5/mscorlib.dll (Location of the symbol related to previous error
)    

Here's my workspace snapshot, though I'm not sure you can view the Exceptions.cs console: link

Hi, try using favoriteThings.Length (with an uppercase L) instead. C# can be really picky at times... ;)
