JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Using String Methods

Having a hard time passing this task 2.

Not sure what Im doing wrong but I've watched the video several times and Im still lost as to adding the symbol and lastName to the UpperCase. I got the first part but then Im stumped on the second task.

app.js
var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase();
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>
var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase() + "#" + lastName.toToUpperCase();

Hint: You can join strings together using the concatenation operator, which uses the same symbol as addition for numbers ("+").

yea my bad - sorry :( actually wanted to share link for more info about strings concatenation but forgot - http://javascript.info

That's good but you should also revise your other comment and at least add some description of the code differences.

Thank you Cobe Learns for providing me with some help on that problem. I didn't mean to get you in trouble though. And thanks for the extra links!!
