    Always read the details of the compiler error diagnostics: the caret '^' points to the end of 'height' wich is one token to the compiler (a name); it didn't expect that token, it expected a semi-colon and it said so. Go back in your source text and check where the compiler could've wanted to see a semi-colon.

    kind regards,

    Jos
