Hint not working

Tell us what’s happening:

I followed the hint for this challenge, but I am only seeing two separate chunks of code to input, while there are 3 input areas. Am I missing something here?

  **Your code so far**

class ControlledInput extends React.Component {
constructor(props) {
  this.state = {
    input: ''
  // Change code below this line
  {this.set.state ({
    input: event.target.value

  // Change code above this line
// Change code below this line

//what goes here?

// Change code above this line
render() {
  return (
      { /* Change code below this line */}
        <input value = {this.state.input} onChange = {this.handleChange.bind(this)}/>

      { /* Change code above this line */}
      <h4>Controlled Input:</h4>

Challenge: Create a Controlled Input

Link to the challenge:

Hi @nunju,

this.handleChange.bind(this) needs to be inside the constructor{ } and the handleChange function needs to be written outside it.

Hope this helps.


Ok, yeah…that makes sense now. Thanks for your help! Guess I was confused at the order that the hint was written in.

Isn’t it


Yeah, you are right, it’s

this.setState( . . .)

I realized my mistake yesterday when I was looking at my code again and meant to mention it in my comment back for other’s future reference but it slipped my mind.
