Add Item button not working.

Here is my JS code. Where am I going wrong?

const toggleList = document.getElementById('toggleList');

const listDiv = document.querySelector('.list');

const descriptionInput = document.querySelector('input.description');

const descriptionP = document.querySelector('p.description');

const descriptionButton = document.querySelector('button.description');

const addItemInput = document.querySelector('imput.addItemInput');

const addItemButton = document.querySelector('button.addItemButton');

toggleList.addEventListener('click', () => { if (listDiv.style.display == 'none') { toggleList.textContent = 'Hide list'; listDiv.style.display = 'block'; } else { toggleList.textContent = 'Show list'; listDiv.style.display = 'none'; } });

descriptionButton.addEventListener('click', () => { descriptionP.innerHTML = descriptionInput.value + ':'; descriptionInput.value = ''; });

addItemButton.addEventListener('click', () => {
let ul = document.getElementsByTagName('ul')[0]; let li = document.createElement('li'); li.textContent = addItemInput.value; ul.appendChild(li); addItemInput.value = ''; } });

There are spelling and syntax errors:

  • "imput" instead of "input"
  • a stray extra closing brace (}) on the last line
