React and Redux - Manage State Locally First

Tell us what’s happening:

why is my code not working?

Your code so far

class DisplayMessages extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = {
      input: "",
      messages: []
    }
  }
  // Add handleChange() and submitMessage() methods here
this.handleChange=this.handleChange.bind(this);
this.submitMessage=this.submitMessage.bind(this);
handleChange(event){this.setState({input:event.target.value, messages:this.state.messages})}
submitMessage(){this.setState({input:"", messages:[...this.state.messages, this.state.input]})}
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <h2>Type in a new Message:</h2>
        { /* Render an input, button, and ul below this line */ }
<input onChange= {this.handleChange} value={this.state.input}></input>
<button onClick={this.submitMessage}>Submit</button>
<ul>{this.state.messages.map((item)=> <li key={item}>{item}</li>)}</ul>
        { /* Change code above this line */ }
      </div>
    );
  }
};

    super(props);
    this.state = {
      input: "",
      messages: []
    }
 ........   put them here......
}

you need to define the handleChange and submitMessage methods inside the class

It worked ! Thank you so much!
