Learn Basic String and Array Methods by Building a Music Player - Step 55

Tell us what’s happening:

I get an error: Use a ternary operator to check if currentTitle is truthy. If so, implicitly return currentTitle otherwise implicitly return an empty string. Assign this result to playingSong.textContent .

Your code so far

Here is my code so far:

playingSong.textContent = currentTitle === true ? currentTitle : "";

Hey there,

What you wrote is completely fine. I think its an issue to be fixed from the test side.

However to pass this test use the below code which exactly does the same thing as your code, but in a different style(less verbosal way):

Mod edit: removed

Happy Coding :keyboard: !

Please do not provide any solution code. It should not be anything someone can copy and paste to pass the challenge. Thanks.

FIne, I won’t do it.

But there is an issue in the test itself. This test imposed a very strict and narrow solution ignoring all other correct approaches. I just gave a different version of the his solution, because he already had one.

Then you can use words such as “remove the strict operator in your code as it is not needed” and continue to describe your suggestion instead of providing the actual code. Thanks

@nurularifin83 In your code you have the strict operator (===) You can remove this as its not needed, and then in place of the word true you can use the word currentTitle and it should get rid of the error you are having


Thank you so much cody, I solved. Sometimes the problem is very simple, but my brain can’t even think like that :face_holding_back_tears:


Hey I tried doing the exact same thing but still my code does notpass the test.
