You're on the right track! Instead of jumping to the 'values.push' method, how would you store the elements with the class of "required"? You can store those in a variable, then call jQuery's 'each()' method and pass in the function to push the value of each element into the array. Then you can return the array of values.

Hopefully I made that coherent enough! If you're still stuck let me know and I'll post some code.

Hey Charlie!

I know it can be frustrating. If you are having trouble with your knowledge of arrays and their methods, I would suggest taking a look at the JavaScript Foundations/Deep Dive. It goes over arrays and basic methods, among many other things, and is a great way to get the basics of JavaScript down. Give that a try, then when you come back to this it should make much more sense!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks Andrew, I actually had the same problem as Charlie here - I didn't realize this Project was labeled as 'Advanced'. I was working through this as part of the WordPress track. Looking forward to work on the Javascript Foundations now.

I just took the selectet fields (.required), put a method on it (each), and in this each-method I push the Value ( $(this).val()) of the field I selected to the array! and at the end return the array.

I hope it was a little bit helpfull.


Thanks guys.

I'm stuck on the same exercise and feeling pretty frustrated. I understand very little about arrays and .push() I feel it's not very well explained in the videos and the learning gradient is way too steep in my opinion.
