Creating an array from a method

Creating an array from a method

(OP)
I am attempting to construct an array from a method, but I am receiving an error that the array must have an array size or array initializer. I thought the code below would do this, but it seems that C# is wanting more information up front, and I am not entirely sure what to give it. If I try to add "new string[] method", that does not work either.

CODE

string[] testArray = testFunction(Directory);

public string[] BuildDirArr(string dirtoproc) {
string[] getAllDirs = Directory.GetDirectories(dirtoproc);
// Do pattern matching on the directories here in a for loop, discarding those that do not match.
//+ The for loop adds good directories to a list, then I do a list to array conversion before doing return.
return(MatchingDirs);
}

Thanks in advance.

Seems the answer was to add static to the method.
