Learn Introductory JavaScript by Building a Pyramid Generator - Step 86

Tell us what’s happening:

The instructions say “Update your while loop condition to check if done is not equal to count.” , so I changed the "if (done === count) to “if (done !== count)” but it is still telling me that my while loop should check if done and count are not equal. Where am I going wrong here?

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

// User Editable Region


let result = ""

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

console.log(result);
