Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 69

Tell us what’s happening:

Can someone helps me to find whats the problem in my code ? :slight_smile:

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello Zaira'
custom_key = 'python'

def vigenere(message, key, direction):
    key_index = 0
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

    for char in message.lower():
    
        # Append space to the message
        if char == ' ':
            encrypted_text += char
        else:        
            # Find the right key character to encode
            key_char = key[key_index % len(key)]
            key_index += 1

            # Define the offset and the encrypted letter
            offset = alphabet.index(key_char)
            index = alphabet.find(char)
            new_index = (index + offset) % len(alphabet)
            encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
    
    return encrypted_text
#comment  
encryption = vigenere(text, custom_key, direction)
print(encryption)

sorry, the instructions are :" Add a third parameter called direction to your function definition. Also, comment out the last two lines to avoid errors in the console."

Hello and welcome to the forum!

To comment the last two lines out, simply put a # in front of both.

thank you so much !!
