Default Switch-statement

Hei!

The error I get is that it is expected an { and an } in the switch statement;

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace Ch04Ex03
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            const string mittNavn = "lasse";
            const string etNavn = "ola";
            const string sillyNavn = "jens";
            string navn;

            Console.WriteLine("Hva er navnet ditt?");
            navn = Console.ReadLine();

            switch (navn.ToLower())
            {
                Case mittNavn;
                    Console.WriteLine("Hei {0}, du heter det samme som meg!", navn);
                    break;

                Case etNavn;
                    Console.WriteLine("Hei {0}, for et bonde-navn!", navn);
                    break;

                Case sillyNavn;
                    Console.WriteLine("Hei {0}, fjollete navn forresten!", navn);
                    break;
            }

            Console.WriteLine("Hei {0}, velkommen!", navn);

            Console.ReadKey;
        }
    }
}


Can you help me?

Mvh

Hi,

"Case" needs to be "case" C# is case-sensitive :)

EDIT:
Oh, and you have used semi colons (;) to terminate your case, when it should be a colon (:)
