Default Problems with Chapter 6 code

Hello, 1st post in this forum. Thanks for being here!

I'm going through the book chapter-by-chapter, e-Book actually (Google Play), so no copy/paste allowed, so downloaded the code.

For chapter 6, I've noticed on here that there are a few issues, but posters have helped, in the Sell.cshtml file.

There's a "=" missing on line 120, but that's a no-brainer.

Here's what has me stumped: two "Expected identifier or string" errors, on lines 71 and 88.

Comparing the downloaded code with the code in the e-Book, everything looks good.


Thanks in advance,

Hi there,

These are caused by the extra commas on line 70 and 87. Simply remove them, and the errors in WebMatrix go away. The page runs fine in both cases though.

Thank you Imar. I realized after I posted this that the errors were not critical stops! Cheers!
