C# C# Objects Methods Method Overloading

Method Overload

Add a second parameter to the constructor named reactionTime after the existing parameter and use it to initialize the value of the ReactionTime field.

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
    class Frog
        public readonly int TongueLength;
        public readonly int ReactionTime;

        public Frog(int tongueLength)
            TongueLength = tongueLength;

        public bool EatFly(int distanceToFly)
            return TongueLength >= distanceToFly;

Hi Winston,

Was there an issue you were experiencing with this code challenge? I'm not exactly sure what you're needing assistance with. In regards to this step in the challenge it is asking that you add another parameter to the constructor for the Frog class. Remember that like methods, constructors can take multiple comma separated parameters, like this:

public class Foo {
    private String Param1;
    private String Param2;    

    public Foo(String param1, String param2) {
        Param1 = param1;
        Param2 = param2;

Again, I'm not sure what it is you're needing help with, but I hope this helps.
