C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Modeling and Presenting Data Creating a Data Model

What Am I doing wrong in this challenge?

namespace Treehouse.Models { public class VideoGame { public int Id {get; set;} public string Title {get; set;} public string Description {get; set;} public string[] Characters {get; set;} public string Publisher {get; set;} }

public string DisplayText
{     
    get
    {
        return Title  + "(" + Publisher  + ")";
    }
}

}

VideoGame.cs
namespace Treehouse.Models
{
    public class VideoGame
    {
        public int Id {get; set;}
        public string Title {get; set;}
        public string Description {get; set;}
        public string[] Characters {get; set;}
        public string Publisher {get; set;}
    }

    public string DisplayText
    {     
        get
        {
            return Title  + "(" + Publisher  + ")";
        }
    }
}

There are two issues:

  1. You have placed the DisplayText method outside of the VideoGame class, it needs to be placed within it.
  2. Since concatenating strings does not add any spaces you need to manually place a space beteen the title and the opening parenthesis in order to avoid returning string like this: Super Mario 64(Nintendo).

Like this:

namespace Treehouse.Models
{
public class VideoGame
    {
        public int Id {get; set;}
        public string Title {get; set;}
        public string Description {get; set;}
        public string[] Characters {get; set;}
        public string Publisher {get; set;}

        public string DisplayText
        {
            get
            {
                return Title  + " (" + Publisher  + ")";
            }
        }
    }
}

thanks! it worked!
