jquery query

Stuck on a code challenge and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.


This is the code I am writing and I keep getting the "bummer" notification.

//Select Input with the id of #fullName $( "#fullName" ).val();

I've checked the docs and asked a few friends but I can't find the problem.

Any ideas?

Hey Andrea, you're doing everything right except passing a value.. The question is worded funny because the answer only needs to be on one line and it separates the question into two.

//Show Prompt Window and store value var fullName = prompt("What is your full name?");

//Select Input with the id of #fullName $("#fullname).val(); <---- this is correct, you've selected the input with the id of #fullName //Insert value in to full name input <-----this is what you didn't do

** The value you need to insert is the text from the prompt dialog box, which is stored where? In the var fullName ** SO, the value you need to insert is? fullName

Final Answer: $("fullName").val(fullName);

Hope this helps!


Make sure to use the # selector otherwise jQuery doesn't know you want to target an ID a will instead look around for the <fullName> tag.

Cheers guys,

The help is much appreciated. :)
