Anonymous Function question giving me trouble.

I completed the first part of the challenge which was to assign an empty anonymous function to the 'anonymousFunction' variable. Now its telling me to make the second anonymous function execute.

'''

var anonymousFunction = function(){};

 function () {
    window.didExecute = true;
  };

'''

I tried loading it into a variable and calling it, like this:

''' var secondFunction = function (){ window.didExecute = true; }; secondFunction(); '''

but to no avail. I can't really think of what else to try. Should I be loading it into the first function?

Thanks for help

try this <script> var anonymousFunction = function() {

};

(function() { window.didExecute = true; })(); </script>

Hey Louis, you should have:

      var anonymousFunction = function () {};

      (function () {
          window.didExecute = true;
      })();
