JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM Responding to User Interaction The Event Object

Event target instead of FOR loops?

I don't get it... does it mean it is always better to use a condition with an event, instead of the loops? when would we use loops then?

Events and loops are for different things, you wouldn't use one to replace the other. But there will be some occasions where you might use both together..

Events are for responding to things that happen dynamically, such as a button being clicked. And loops are for things that are repeated multiple times, like adding up prices on a shopping cart list.

hey Steven Parker , can I ask you for a super favour? can you revise this question I posted? few people responded to it but not sure if I am doing something wrong as I cannot get it work... just wondering if you can check their responses to make sure they are correct? if so, i will need to revise my workshop as I can't get it work. Thank you!!
