JavaScript React Basics (2018) Understanding State Create a Stateful Component

Browser (chrome) doesn't recognize the state. Score isn't showing as 0 when I put it within the state.

 class Counter extends React.Component {
  constructor() {
    this.state = {
      score: 0 

  render() {
   return (
 <div className="counter">
      <button className="counter-action decrement"> - </button>
      <span className="counter-score">{this.props.score}</span>
      <button className="counter-action increment"> + </button>

it shows previous scores that were listed

Hi Shamique,

in your counter-score you'll need to reference to this.state.score instead of this.props.score when you refactor the Class.

Hope this helps. Happy coding!

Thank you!
