Code Challenge JQuery

Ok so I promised myself I would ask but I have been seriously working through this badge and code challenge all afternoon and its driving me nuts.

Create a method called 'requiredValues' that returns an array of all the values of inputs with the class of 'required'. The first function is the answer to the previous code challenge - which I passed.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the second function please.

function isValidEmail (email) {
    return email.indexOf("@") != -1;
function requiredValues () {
    var blanks = new Array(); 
    return blanks;

Your inputs.required needs to be a jquery object. Since .each() is a JQuery method you need to turn your CSS selector into a Jquery Object like so $("selector") . I think that will fix your issue.

edit: also it looks like you may be missing a semicolon at the end of your anonymous function block.

Legend - thank you Stone
