Build an Interactive Website> Form Validation and Manipulation >Checking Values

I feel dumb. I think I've checked this code a billion times character for character. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Here's the question:

"Create a method called 'requiredValues' that returns an array of all the values of inputs with the class of 'required'."

Here's what I put: function requiredValues(){ var $required = $(".required"); var blanks = new Array(); $required.each(function(){ blanks.push($(this).val() == ""); }); return blanks.indexOf(true) != -1; }

I've tried putting the declaration for the variable $required before the method but it didn't work that way either. HELP!!!!

I don't remember it exactly, but I think you have to replace:

return blanks.indexOf(true) != -1; }


return blanks;

Also here is a thread on how to display code in the forum.

Thanks but still not working
