Can anyone help with this please?
“Now you need to modify your display text. Change the innerText property of the text to be You enter the store. .”

You should use dot notation to access the innerText property of text."

Your code so far

function goStore() {
button1.innerText = “Buy 10 health (10 gold)”;
button2.innerText = “Buy weapon (30 gold)”;
button3.innerText = “Go to town square”;
button1.onclick = buyHealth;
button2.onclick = buyWeapon;
button3.onclick = goTown;
document.getElementById(‘text’).innerText = “You enter the store.”;

Hi. You have already initialised the text element, so you don’t have to do that again. Just access it by it’s variable name.

Thank you so much but it still is an error apparently

Im not sure exactly what it is im trying to do to be honest, so im finding researching it confusing

Hi, thank you. Ive tried this but its still saying its incorrect:

function goStore() {
button1.innerText = “Buy 10 health (10 gold)”;
button2.innerText = “Buy weapon (30 gold)”;
button3.innerText = “Go to town square”;
button1.onclick = buyHealth;
button2.onclick = buyWeapon;
button3.onclick = goTown;
const text = document.querySelector(“#text”);

" Sorry, your code does not pass. Keep trying.

You should use dot notation to access the innerText property of text."

What should I do please?

You should not repeat this code.

const text = document.querySelector("#text");

It is already at the top of the file. So you already have access to the text element using the text variable.

Use the variable text and access the .innerText property on it.

Example:

element.innerText

Assign the string to that property.

Example:

element.innerText = "Some string value"

Edit: just to be clear, element in the above code would be text in the challenge.

Thank you for you reply. Ive tried this and it is still saying it is incorrect.
text.innerText = “text”

Thank you for you reply. Ive tried this and it is still saying it is incorrect.
text.innerText = “text”

That is not the text you are asked to assign it.

Change the innerText property of the text to be You enter the store.

Thank you. Like this? text.innerText = “You enter the store.”

I did this: text.innerText = “You enter the store.” but its still saying its not correct?

That should pass but you need to make sure you are using the correct quotes, standard double "" or single '' quotes.

This is what you have now and it should pass as long as you don’t make other changes.

text.innerText = "You enter the store."

If it still doesn’t pass try resetting and do it again.

If you need help post all of the function code. Add triple backticks around your code when posting it on the forum.

Hi, I tried it with double quotes but its still saying its incorrect?
function goStore() {
button1.innerText = “Buy 10 health (10 gold)”;
button2.innerText = “Buy weapon (30 gold)”;
button3.innerText = “Go to town square”;
button1.onclick = buyHealth;
button2.onclick = buyWeapon;
button3.onclick = goTown;
text.innerText (“Text”)

Any ideas please?

Thank you, mush appreciated

Hi there! Posting solutions is not allowed here on the forum

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.
