When you select elements by class, you get an array of items back. Because of this, your tr variable is actually an array, and you can't use addEventListener on an array. What you need to do is loop through each item in the array, and add an eventlistener to them.

yea this make sense cause id can be just 1 per page and class can be a lot of more :)
