JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Password Confirmation Form Perform: Part 2

The password prompts never disappear… What am I doing wrong?

https://w.trhou.se/ybx77g2nru

As best I can tell, I have followed the code exactly as instructed and the console doesn't show any errors, but any time I load the page in the browser the prompts appear next to the text boxes after the pages loaded, regardless of whether or not I am focused on a particular field. Anybody have any ideas?

On line 9 you attempted to write a comment, but you are missing one slash (/):

app.js
/Find out if password is valid

This invalidates that event handler. You could have seen this error in the browser's JavaScript console.

Also, on line 33, you are missing one of the listeners needed to perform the check: .keyup(passwordEvent);

got it. Thanks! Not sure why it didn't show up in the console when I looked, but it didn't.
