Learn Basic String and Array Methods by Building a Music Player - Step 64

Tell us what’s happening:

I can’t seem to get to evaluate this ternary operation to work.
Please help!

Your code so far

  currentTitle = currentTitle ? playingSong.textContent = currentTitle : "";
  currentArtist = currentArtist ? songArtist.textContent = currentArtist : "";

WARNING

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.

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

You can’t have two assignments in the same line of code. I’m not sure where the ternary operator was first introduced in FCC, so I can’t point you to that specific step. But check out the MDN page for a refresher.
