The code does not appear to be complete. It might be better if you make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Also, when posting code, use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:

You just have a typo.

On the first (non-comment) line of your JS code, you wrote "overlay" instead of "$overlay" (with a dollar-sign).
