JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Making Changes to the DOM Styling Elements

The button to hide and show text works properly, however, the button does not transition back to "Hide list" and ...

remains on "Show list" TIA!

const toggleList = document.getElementById('toggleList'); const listDiv = document.querySelector('.list'); const input = document.querySelector('input'); const p = document.querySelector('p.description'); const button = document.querySelector('button');

toggleList.addEventListener('click', () => { if (listDiv.style.display == 'none') { toggleList.textConent = 'Hide list'; listDiv.style.display = 'block'; } else { toggleList.textContent = 'Show list'; listDiv.style.display = 'none'; } });

button.addEventListener('click', () => { p.innerHTML = input.value + ':';
});

It's a little spelling error. The line that should change it to "hide" is setting the "textConent" property (with 3 "t"s) instead of "textContent" (4 "t"s).
