Learn Form Validation by Building a Calorie Counter - Step 86

Tell us what’s happening:

I’m stuck on step 87 of the Building a Calorie Calculator lesson.

" Add an event listener to your calorieCounter element. The event type should be submit , and the callback function should be calculateCalories ."

Your code so far

calorieCounter.addEventListener(type=“submit”) {
calculateCalories();
};

Learn Form Validation by Building a Calorie Counter - Step 86

I’m sorry, stuck on step 86* I couldn’t find a way to edit the post so adding this comment here.

Hiya, you don’t need the “type=” I think that’s an HTML attribute thing. Also calculateCalories should be an argument inside .addEventListener. You don’t need curly brackets at all.

You have this code above.

addEntryButton.addEventListener("click", addEntry);

addEntryButton is the element, "click" is the event type, and addEntry is the callback.

It is the same thing you need to write again, but this time the element is calorieCounter, the event type is "submit" and the callback is calculateCalories.
