What's wrong with this code?

Can't figure this one out. Anyone have a best answer for this one?


// Handle: my_plugin_css
// Plugin folder: my-plugin
// CSS file: my-plugin.css

function my_plugin_styles {

    wp_enqueue_style( 'wp_plugin_styles', plugins_url('my-plugin/my-plugin.css'));
add_action( 'admin_head','my_plugin_styles');

Thanks Jeff. Looks like the video "Adding CSS to WordPress Plugin Settings Pages" at :55 is wrong, or I am misunderstanding. It says to use the function hook.

"Then, we could use the WP enqueue style function. Give it the hook that is going to be the same name as our function name and then use a function called plugins URL. And then inside of that, type in the name of our folder for our plugin followed by the name of the CSS file we want link to."

I think you used "my_plugin_styles" when you should have used "my_plugin_css"
