morse.py solution works fine in PyCharm and Workspace, but not here...

I copy my code from here into PyCharm and also Workspaces, which delivers the correct dot-dot-dot result, but I keep getting an error message...can anyone find the problem? Cheers...

class Letter:
    def __init__(self, pattern=None):
        self.pattern = pattern

    def __str__(self):
        morse = []
        for x in self.pattern:
            if x == ".":
            elif x == "_":
        return "-".join(morse)

class S(Letter):
    def __init__(self):
        pattern = ['.', '.', '.']

Copy and paste is the problem. Or it could be a mix of tabs and spaces. Try re-typing into the challenge with only spaces.

Ok, wrote the code again, didn't work, then restarted the challenge, re-wrote the code the same way and it worked. Go figure. Thanks for the swift reply.

You're welcome. Do you mind selecting my answer as "the best one" so I get credit? Thanks!
