I am new to C#. Not sure what is wrong here.
Error      1      Foreach cannot operate on a 'method group'. Did you intend to invoke the 'method group'?      

namespace Test_Csharp
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void btnGetfilename_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            DirectoryInfo work_dir = new DirectoryInfo("C:\\Documents and Settings\\test\\Desktop\\test");

            foreach (FileInfo fn in work_dir.GetFiles)
