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

Jquery Code Help Needed

I don't know how to show code on the forum...I need help with Jquery. The challenge is to hide the password hint once the password has > 8 characters.

Edit==> I just figured it out! Even though it was the same code, I guess I needed to reload the browser to get it to work. Problem solved!

To put HTML/CSS/JavaScript in a forum post:

  1. hit return to create a new line and type three back tick characters ```

  2. hit return to create another new line and paste your HTML

  3. hit return and add three more back tick characters: ``` The back tick character isn't the same as the single quote -- ' -- mark; the back tick is located on the same key as the ~ on most keyboards.

Also to add correct color highlighting add the name of the language after the back ticks like this: ```CSS. Here's what CSS should look like in a forum post:

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
}

Hi Annette - just click on Markdown Cheatsheet below the comment box and it will explain how to put code in comments:

        ```html
        <p>This is code!</p>
        ```
<p>Thanks so much, Aimee!</p>

'''js //Hide hints $("form span").hide(); //Find out if password is valid function passwordEvent() { if($(this).val().length > 8) { $(this).next().hide(); } else { $(this).next().show(); } }

$("#password").focus(passwordEvent).keyup(function() {

}); '''

Hint for the future when you do need to post code again:

You're using an apostrophe (') there but you should be using a backtick (`) -- it's usually right next to the 1 key on your keyboard :)

I tried posting the code per the instructions, but it didn't format correctly.

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

$("#password").focus(passwordEvent).keyup(function() {

}); 
            ```

'''html //Hide hints $("form span").hide(); //Find out if password is valid function passwordEvent() { if($(this).val().length > 8) { $(this).next().hide(); } else { $(this).next().show(); } }

$("#password").focus(passwordEvent).keyup(function() {

}); '''
