C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Controllers Using Action Result Types

Using Action Result Types

What am I missing? This is the error I keep getting " In the 'Detail' method, are you returning a call to the 'Content' method?"

Here is the question:

Update the provided VideoGamesController.Detail action method to use ActionResult for its return type instead of a string.

-In the action method, return the result of a call to the base controller's Content method.

-Keep the content the same by passing the string literal "Welcome to the Video Game Detail page!" to the Content method.

using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
        public ActionResult Detail()
               return new ContentResult()
                Content = "Welcome to the Video Game Detail page!"
