Your code so far

i have koment the last 2 lines then it wont let me pass
i muss as a third parameter call direction tou my function defenition
woth i know ist mei function oher ist:

i do not understand it i have to do precisely
i will wait for a tip


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello Zaira'
custom_key = 'python'

def vigenere(message, key,):
    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
#    
encryption = vigenere(text, custom_key)
#
print(encryption)

Hello @remuschilom1489,
You have to add direction as the third parameter.

Instead of using comment above please use it in front of them!

Happy Coding :man_technologist:

You need to have 3 parameters defined for the vigenere function.

Can you share your full code again?
