JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Spoiler Revealer Using click()

To the click handler add an empty anonymous function so that you can add code to it later.

js/app.js
//Prevent spoilerphobes from seeing spoilers
//Solution: Hide spoilers and reveal them through user interaction

//1, Hide spoiler
$(".spoiler span").hide();
//2, Add a button
$(".spoiler").append("<button>Reveal Spoiler!</button>");
//3, When button pressed
$("button").click(("handler") ) ;
$("button").click(function() ){};

You are close. Don't add an extra button; use the same line for this. Then add then the function within the click handler.

$("button").click(function(){
});

Here's a few hints:

  • this challenge requires only one line of code.
  • the line with the word "handler" in it is not valid syntax and shouldn't be there.
  • the function braces are on the wrong side of the final close parenthesis
