Problems with Create a Controlled Input

Tell us what’s happening:

Hello people.somebody could tell me what it is wrong in my code because i did all what the challenge asked and it is working but i can not pass the challenge.
that is what i dont get:
“Typing in the input element should update the state and the value of the input, and the p element should render this state as you type.”

Your code so far

class ControlledInput extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      input: ''
    // change code below this line
    // change code above this line
  // change code below this line
    this.setState({ });
  // change code above this line
  render() {
    return (
        { /* change code below this line */}
        <input onChange={this.handleChange}/>
        { /* change code above this line */}
        <h4>Controlled Input:</h4>

Link to the challenge:

Make sure you are also giving value attribute to the input and have it equal to this.state.input

Add a value attribute which is equal to the input property of the component’s state.

<input type="text" value={this.state.input} onChange={this.handleChange} />

thanks a lot. That was the problem. It is a little hard at the begining to understand the logic of React. but i am doing my best. Thanks for the help
