JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Responding to User Interaction The Event Object

Code is not working

listDiv.addEventListener('mouseover', (event) => { if (event.target.tagName == 'LI') { event.target.textContent = event.target.textContent.toUpperCase(); } });

listDiv.addEventListener('mouseout', (event) => { if (event.target.tagName == 'LI') { event.target.textContent = event.target.textContent.toLowerCase(); }

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this code? The mouseover and mouseout does not work when I preview the page in the browser. From what I can tell, this is exactly the same as the code Guil writes in the video.

Did you name the variable the same way as he did where you add the eventListener to? Would be helpful if you could post the whole code :).

Yes, the variable has been declared exactly the same way the teacher did it. I spent way too much time trying to find the error and from what I can tell it's the exact same way he coded it. Very frustrating.

Can you post all the whole code ?

Hi Tobias,

I figured out what I was doing wrong. I had finished an event handler on the toggleall code. Thanks again.

Good Job!
