What i'm doing incorrectly?

//Show Prompt Window and store value
var fullName = prompt("What is your full name?");

//Select Input with the id of #fullName
var $selInput = $("#fullName").val();

//Insert value in to full name input
 var $addValue = $("#fullName").attr("value", "$selInput");
<!DOCTYPE html>
<label for="fullName">Full Name</label><input id="fullName" name="fullName" value="" disabled>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
<script src="js/app.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>

It's somewhat of a strangely worded question with two lines of comments.

Basically all you have to do is select the ID and then set it's value.


$('#fullName') selects the ID and .val(fullName) sets the value to be that of the variable fullName
