JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Write Another Program


What am I doing wrong?

Inside the script tags, write a function that will open an alert dialog with the message Warning? (in case you can't see my code)

<script src ="scripts.js"></script> <script src= "apps.js"> </script> <script> alert ("Warning"); </script>

^^^^This tells me ? 1 is no longer correct but produces an alert warning box. ^^^^

<script src= "scripts.js"> </script> <script> alert ("Warning") </script>

^^^^I believe this one reported a syntax error^^^^

If your alert is inside the script tags: <script> alert("Warning!") </script>

it should have worked (with or without the exclamation mark).

Maybe try alert without the space ex: alert ("Warning"); //-> This is what you show us. alert("Warning"); //-> you should try this.

If is asking you to make a alert function then try that code below.

function myFunction () { alert("Warning"); }

Hope this help. Good luck!.

Here's the code I used to pass the challenge:


It passes the challenge with or without the semi-colon at the end, but you should get in the habit of ending every JavaScript statement with the semi-colon.
