Learn Form Validation by Building a Calorie Counter - Step 37

Tell us what’s happening: Instructions have too much wordiness and make absolutely no sense. I don’t even know where begin. After several hours guessing my way with vague and implied instructions, my code is listed below.

Your code so far

function addEntry() {

const targetId = document.getElementById(‘#entry-dropdown.value’);



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 had understood that is my bad english! I am also in this step!

Hint: you don’t want to use “document.getElementById”. Instead you want to put the # in a string before the value of entryDropdown.

const targetId = "#" + entryDropdown.value ;
