Learn Basic String and Array Methods by Building a Music Player - Step 42

Tell us what’s happening:

This step and the previous step have been difficult. I used Chatgpt and copied paste the answer because I do not know what ought to be done. I don’t want to copy answers from AI. I am confused about what is required in this step

Your code so far

addEventListener("click") => {} 
<!-- file: index.html -->

/* file: styles.css */

/* file: script.js */
// User Editable Region

addEventListener("click") => {} 

// User Editable Region

step back, what is the syntax for the addEventListener? if you don’t remember it, you can google this

Hi @camaguncoso


The red underline indicates a syntax error.

Also, something is missing from the code.

You should call the addEventListener() method on your playButton variable.

Happy coding

Syntax is not correct. For any element, the syntax for event listener will be:

element.addEventListener("eventName", () => {
      // Logic goes here.

The eventName is the event for which you want to do something in your code. The second parament is the callback function which is a normal function which will execute when the event is happened. In your case the event is click.

Thank you very much. This actually helped a lot
