Need help with C# Constructers! Assistance is highly appreciated.

Here is my code. For whatever reason I can't click "Get Help" so I'll do it this way. 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;
    }
}

}

The constructor above looks good. What problem are you having?

Also, use the Markdown Cheatsheet info for code formatting.

Take a look at what the constructor has now:

    public Frog(int tongueLength)
    {
        TongueLength = tongueLength;
    }

There is one parameter in the constructor named tongueLength and it uses it to initialize the value of the TongueLength field. Notice that the parameter name starts with a lower case letter, but the field name has an upper case letter.

Your job is to edit the constructor so it takes two parameters. The second parameter will go beside the first, separated by a comma. Then you will add another line to do the initialization, much like the one already there but with different names. The challenge gave you the name to use for the parameter, and the name of the field that it initializes. The only thing missing is the type of the parameter, but you guess that will be int to match the type of the field.

I'll bet you can get it now, right?

Steven Parker Hey! Thanks for replying. The question that I need help with is this: "Add a second parameter to the constructor named reactionTime after the existing parameter and use it to initialize the value of the ReactionTime field." I don't get it? Thanks again, you are awesome.
