Learn Introductory JavaScript by Building a Pyramid Generator - Step 82

Tell us what’s happening:

Getting error message “Your while loop should check if done and count are not equal.” Where did I go wrong?

Your code so far

const character = "#";
const count = 8;
const rows = [];

function padRow(rowNumber, rowCount) {
  return " ".repeat(rowCount - rowNumber) + character.repeat(2 * rowNumber - 1) + " ".repeat(rowCount - rowNumber);

// TODO: use a different type of loop
/*for (let i = 1; i <= count; i++) {
  rows.push(padRow(i, count));

let continueLoop = false;
let done = 0;

// User Editable Region

while (continueLoop) {
  rows.push(padRow(done, count));
if (done !== count) {
    continueLoop = false;

// User Editable Region

let result = ""

for (const row of rows) {
  result = result + "\n" + row;

Your if is checking if done and count are not equal.

Your while loop is checking if continueLoop is true

I have exactly the same issue. I followed the directions as stated and got the same error. Where in the instructions was there any mention of continueLoop? It seems immaterial to the challenge step. Is there a more helpful answer?

This is the while loop condition

you need to update that.

not this

When the directions say while loop condition they mean this

hope that clarifies where to make your changes


Thank you. This solved the problem.

It is a matter of interpreting the slogan only.

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

Still, the problem was solved. I encouraged a solution.
