Adding new "Remove" button when we click to "Add Item" button within new <li> element.

How can we add new "Remove" button when we click to "Add Item" button within new <li> element?

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

I have tried with lines those are commented. But it did not work when I uncommented them.

I've gotten the solution in the next video :)

In line 4: replace "li.createElement" with "document.createElement" And Line 5 must be before Line 4:

So final code will look like below:

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