C# C# Objects Object-Oriented Programming Instantiation

Not sure what I am doing wrong and there is no help on this one :/

How do you instantiate Frog?

Program.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {            
            var mike = new Frog;
        }
    }
}
Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Frog
    {

    }
}

In the Program.cs file, you want:

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{

    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {            
           Frog mike = new Frog();

        }
    }
}

The term for creating an object from a class is called instantiation, above we just instantiated an object(mike) from the frog class.

Indiya Gooch Thank you very much! :D I got it right before I saw your post.

There are two issues with your code 1) You are trying to construct a Frog object without properly writing the constructor, you need () after the Frog to construct the frog object. try writing new Frog();

2) When you create a frog object you want to assign it to a variable/type Frog and not a generic var

In conclusion your code should look like Frog frog = new Frog();
