Need help

I need help it's not giving me clarity on what I did wrong.

  var firstName = "Andrew";
  var lastName = "Chalkley";
  console.log(firstName + " " + lastName);
}

var contact = {
 function () :printFullName
}

Here's a few hints:

  • when creating an object method, the method name comes first followed by a colon
  • the instructions say to name the method "fullName"
  • after the colon, you can define an anonymous function
  • you can copy the function body from the "printFullName" function

Once I copied the code in the function it says “the fullName method is still a name function” how do I change that?

Are you on task 2 now?

If that's it, you probably only need to change "function printFullName()" to "function ()". If that doesn't fix it, post the whole code as you have it now.

var contact = {
  fullName: function (){
     <code you want to run>
  }
}

FYI: The second method Rafael shows here will not pass the second task of the challenge.
