form.addEventListener('submit', () => {

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>Submit Event</title>
  <input type="text" name="name">
  <input type="Submit" name="submit" value="Submit">

Hi Adlan. Based on your code I assume you are on Task#2. So here we want to stop the default form submit behavior. If you watch the video before this challenge Gil shows you exactly what to do. You need to use the Event.preventDefault method. Also don't forget to add a event object parameter to the callback function.

Good luck and if you are still stuck be sure to post back to the community

You might try looking at the other questions asked about this same challenge. Just be aware that not all answers are guaranteed to be correct.   :wink:
