Learn Basic String and Array Methods by Building a Music Player - Step 56

Tell us what’s happening:

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.

Then, use a ternary operator to check if currentArtist is truthy. If so, implicitly return currentArtist otherwise implicitly return an empty string. Assign this result to songArtist.textContent. I’ve tried but its not passing

Your code so far

playingSong.textContent = true ? ‘currentTitle’ : ‘’;
songArtist.textContent = true ? ‘currentArtist’ : ‘’;

Just an FYI, you do not need to paste the instructions in here for us, we can easily read them for ourselves in the step. What you should do is explain to us in your own words the issue you are having with completing the step.

“Use a ternary operator to check if currentTitle is truthy.”

I don’t see in your code where you are checking if currentTitle is truthy. You have true for the condition in the ternary, which isn’t checking currentTitle and is always going to return true.

Maybe review the syntax again, MDN might also be worth a read.
