Getting a error with e.target.elements on form submission

I’m trying to implement Guil’s onSubmit handler but I’m getting a Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '0' of undefinedin reference to e.target.elements. It appears that the elements array does not exist… Any help would be appreciated Guil Hernandez

It is hard to figure out what is going on without seeing your code, but here is my handleSubmit function in the Home.js file.

    let teacherName = event.target.elements[0].value;
    let teacherTopic = event.target.elements[1].value;
    let path = `featured/${teacherTopic}/${teacherName}`;

Hopefully the finished function can help you out :)

Thanks, that worked

It actually turned out that I misspelled elements as eements somehow!

The ` made the difference for mine as I was using ' at first!

Yeah I think that was also my issue; I didn’t realize that template strings needed a backtick instead of a normal quote :)
