JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Responding to User Interaction Adding an Event Listener

How do you add an empty function as a parameter?

I'm stuck here. I don't know how to add the empty function.

const warning = document.getElementById("warning");
let button = document.getElementById('makeItRed');

button.addEventListener('click', ()=>) {
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>Adding an Event Listener</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="warning">
            Warning: My background should be red!
        <button id="makeItRed">Make It Red!</button>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

Your code is more or less correct, you just have a typo. You have a closing parenthesis right after the fat arrow that does not belong there, if you remove it like this:

button.addEventListener('click', ()=> {

Then you'll be able to pass.

You have just made a simple typo. You just need to remove this closing parenthesis.

button.addEventListener('click', ()=>) {
                        });          ^

You just need to remove this closing parenthesis.
