QUESTION:

Select all inputs and on the 'keydown' event select 'this' and then show the next element.

I got the first one right... But, what about the second?

$("input,textarea").focus(function(){$(this).next()});

You only need to select <input> elements:

$('input')

Use the '.keydown' event rather than '.focus' and then show the next element using the .show() function. Put all of that together and you have your answer!

Ian, Thank you for the help and the explanation. I completed the challenge and I am learning again.

Thanks,

Mike
