this seems to work for part 2:

var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.onreadystatechange = function() {
 if(xhr.readyState === 4 && xhr.status === 200) {
 }
};
xhr.open('GET', 'sidebar.html');
xhr.send();

the challenge seems to have faulty verification on the status attribute. So the initial post i made was faulty. I've corrected the above to use the status attribute.

Thank you Soo much Simon I allready got it but anyways thanks for helping I made you best answer Thank you Again Simon.
