jQuery Plugins > Simple Email Validation Plugin Code Challenge (4/4)

Hey guys,

I'm have no idea what to do for this task and I'm sitting here literally looking at the screen not knowing how I do this.

In the "success" function add the class of "valid" to the textarea that's had a the "keyup" event triggered

Any help would be greatly appreciated; I'll keep re-watching the video and see if anything comes up.


Stu :)

Here's what your code should look like:

$("textarea").validEmail( {on:"keyup", success:function(){ $(this).addClass("valid") }, failure:function(){}} );

Inside the success parameter's function, select this and add the class of valid. The function will be triggered automatically on keyup if it's valid because you set the on parameter to "keyup".
