Learn Introductory JavaScript by Building a Pyramid Generator - Step 82

Tell us what’s happening:

This step asks us to use an if statement using an equality operator. I tried everything according to it and the forum but it didnt work and This step clearly says to use an “if” statement and the answer in the forums show a different solution. Changing the while condition to (done!==count). This contradicts the both instructions given in the step i.e. use an if statement and use an equality operator. I tried it but still nothing seem to work. How do i solve it?? What is the step asking me to do?

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 (done!==count) {


// User Editable Region

let result = ""

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

you need to write an if statement with the equality operator ==, the instructions say that. The inequality operator in the while condition is a future step

There must have been an error in my code earlier and upon checking and step 82 it had different solution on forums for perhaps a different problem. Thanks for clearing my misunderstanding!!
