1. Clipboard error: Try a right-click + copy/paste. You can try Ctrl+c/Ctrl+v as well. That should work.
2. The command \l is showing the correct output as you shared in the screenshot.
3. Command error: The commands (except \l, \d, \c )should end with a semicolon ; like this: CREATE DATABASE students;
If thats the case I would expect those commands to pass the challege, I had to restart and close the browser a bunch of times to get the CREATE DATABASE command to work, and now why cant I create a table or if its being created why is it not passing the challenge?
The main problem I think I see with your commands not working is that you are often forgetting the semi-colon. If you hit enter without a complete command, you can continue the command on the next line…
Here, you entered CREATE TABLE students() and pressed enter. There was no semi-colon so you are basically continuing that command on the next line. You can see the prompt changed from => to ->. When you see a prompt that isn’t =>, that means you are in the middle of a command. You continued the command by entering what’s on the second line - and third line. On the third line you have the semi-colon so it thinks you are now finished with the command - but it tried to execute all of those lines, e.g. CREATE TABLE students() CREATE TABLE students CREATE TABLE students();, as one command. That’s why it’s failing. When you see the -> prompt you can just enter a semi-colon to complete whatever command you are in the middle of and start a new command on the next prompt. I know the prompt doesn’t always show up - just hit enter to make it visible.
I don’t know if I can help you with the copy/pasting issue. The only thing I can mention is that CodeAlly hosts the VM’s, so you may need to allow their domain access to the clipboard. It would be https://app.codeally.io - I would give that a try and let us know if it works. Then we can maybe help others who have had a similar issue.
screen real estate
You can’t move the CodeRoad window outside of vscode, but there’s a few things you can do to get “more” real estate. I zoom my browser out to 80% - that helps a lot. You could make your browser full screen. You can close/open the file explorer on the left by clicking the icon that looks like two pieces of paper near the top left. You can change the layout of things in a number of ways, but if you right click the terminal bar or whatever, you can make it so the two windows you see are side-by-side:
^ Right click “TERMINAL”, click “Move Panel Right” to make the windows side-by-side
I tried it didnt work, I went to their website and did it:
its the same behavior as before, like im able to copy paste everywhere without a problem except in the terminal (which is where i really want it to work)
what your saying makes sense I also thought that the command is continuing like one long sentence and the semicolon is what ends it. however can we just clarify one thing:
my understanding of the above instruction is that all commands Except \l , \d, \c should end with a semi colon.
can you please go over one more time that this is correct behavior around 1:55 of the video :
I am expecting any successful commands to also clear the cache (command) yet it does not, so I guess that is my mistake, so even though this command is correct and even though there was an output directly preceeding it(showing the tables)
