JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Using String Methods

Stuck on challenge task 2, "using string methods," in JavaScript Basics.

I'm stuck on this challenge, any help will be greatly appreciated:

Complete the assignment to the username variable by adding the # symbol followed by an all uppercase version of the lastName variable, using sting concatenation so the final value of username if 23188XTR#SMITH.

This is what I have, I'm getting the error message that the xtr part is still in lower case:

var id = "23188xtr"; var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase(); userName = id + '#'; userName += lastName.toUpperCase();

app.js
var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName = "Smith";

var userName = id.toUpperCase();
userName = id + '#';
userName += lastName.toUpperCase();

you are really close on this one, but I would suggest you concatenate everything into one variable. So the variable userName should have everything on one line. No need to add more steps.

Thanks, Jacob! That clue got me to the correct answer :)

Awesome! glad I could help
