Learn Basic String and Array Methods by Building a Music Player - Step 59

Tell us what’s happening:

Step 59

Use the setAttribute method on the playButton element to set an attribute named aria-label. For the value, use a ternary to set song?.title to Play ${song.title} or "Play" if there’s no song.title available.

Don’t forget you need template interpolation here, so you need to use backticks.

I cannot think any resolution. Please, help.

Your code so far

const setPlayButtonAccessibleText = () => {
const song = userData?.currentSong || userData?.songs[0];
playButton.setAttribute(“aria-label”, song?.title ? Play ${song.title} : Play);


The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

Replace these two sentences with your copied code.
Please leave the ``` line above and the ``` line below,
because they allow your code to properly format in the post.

You might be affected by the bug that’s present in test on this step. Make sure the Play in the else of the ternary operator is within double quotes.


Still nothing.
playButton.setAttribute(“aria-label”, song?.title ? Play ${song.title} : "Play");

There is an issue in this lesson. The suggestions are also wrong, it says to use a back slash \ but that does not work.

My answer:

  playButton.setAttribute("aria-label", `song?.title ? \`Play ${song.title}` : "Play"`);

The suggestion(is wrong) :

 song?.title ? \Play ${song.title}` : "Play"`

The Correct way:

  playButton.setAttribute("aria-label", song?.title ? `Play ${song.title}` : "Play");
