JavaScript Ember.js Controllers Challenge: Controller Routes and Templates

Challenge Task 1 of 1

Challenge Task 1 of 1

In index.html, we've set up a template with a photo. In the CharlesBarkleyController, create an action that shows an alert box when the photo is clicked.

js/app.js
AnimalShelter = Ember.Application.create();

AnimalShelter.Router.map(function() {
  this.resource('charles-barkley');
});

AnimalShelter.IndexRoute = Ember.Route.extend({
  renderTemplate: function() {
    this.render('charles-barkley');
  }
});

AnimalShelter.CharlesBarkleyController = Ember.Controller.extend({
  actions: {
    // your code goes here
    showinfo function () {
      alert ('charles-barkley"');
    }
  }
});
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Animal Shelter</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script src="js/libs/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
  <script src="js/libs/handlebars-v1.3.0.js"></script>
  <script src="js/libs/ember-1.8.1.js"></script>
  <script src="js/app.js"></script>

  <script type="text/x-handlebars" id="charles-barkley">
    <h1>Charles "Bark"ley</h1>
    <p>Click Charles's photo to see more information about him!</p>
    <p><img src='puppies/charles_barkley.jpg' alt='A photo of Charles Barkley' {{action 'showInfo'}}></img></p>
  </script>

create an action that shows an alert box when the photo is clicked:

Try out this code, you are missing a ":" after the action showing. Also remove the second " in the alert function.

AnimalShelter.CharlesBarkleyController = Ember.Controller.extend({
  actions: {
    // your code goes here
    showinfo : function () {
      alert ('charles-barkley');
    }
  }
});
