JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Password Confirmation Form Using next()

How to solve the using next().

The check work always give me bummer true false false! what does it mean? I even rewatched the video and did what the instructor did. What am I doing wrong?

//Problem: Hints are shown even when form is valid
//Solution: Hide and show them at appropriate times

//Hide hints
$("form span").hide();

function passwordEvent(){
    //Find out if password is valid  
    if($("form span").val().length > 8) {
      //Hide hint if valid
    } else {
      //else show hint

//When event happens on password input

//When event happens on confirmation input
  //Find out if password and confirmation match
    //Hide hint if match
    //else show hint 
<!DOCTYPE html>

            <input id="password" name="password" type="password">
            <span>Enter a password longer than 8 characters</span>
            <label for="confirm_password">Confirm Password</label>
            <input id="confirm_password" name="confirm_password" type="password">
            <span>Please confirm your password</span>

Hey, I think you're overthinking this one a little. In passwordEvent(), you can change all the jQuery selectors back to $(this). And since you want the password hint to hide after 8 characters have been reached, that hint is in the next() tag after $(this). So you're looking at $(this).next().hide().
