Rock paper scissors return statements help

I am working on a rock paper scissors project everything is fine up until I actually click on my buttons, my return statements aren’t returning what I have entered.

const buttons = document.querySelectorAll('button');
const resultEl = document.querySelector('#result');

let playerScore = 0;
let computerScore = 0;

const playerScoreEl = document.querySelector('#user-score');
const computerScoreEl = document.querySelector('#computer-score');



buttons.forEach(button => {
    button.addEventListener('click', () => {
      const result = playRound(button.id, computerPlay());
      resultEl.textContexnt = result ;
    });
});

function computerPlay(){
    const choices = ["rock", "paper", "scissors"];
    const randomChoice = Math.floor(Math.random() * choices.length);
    return choices[randomChoice];
}

function playRound(playerSelection, computerSelection){
    if(playerSelection === computerSelection){
        return "It's a tie!";
    } else if (
        (playerSelection === "rock" && computerSelection === "scissors") ||
        (playerSelection === "paper" && computerSelection === "rock") ||
        (playerSelection === "scissors" && computerSelection === "paper")
    ){  
        playerScore++;
        playerScoreEl.textContexnt = playerScore;
        return "You win!" + playerSelection + "beats" + computerSelection;
    } else {
        computerScore++;
        computerScoreEl.textContent = computerScore;
        return "You lose!" + computerSelection + "beats" + playerSelection;
    }
}

Hi @staysavy32

Try removing the back tick at the start of your code.

Happy coding

those were added by freecodecamp when inserting the code i have a query about.

Post your html as well.

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

Please post a link to the step. Thanks

Hi @staysavy32

Could this Contexnt be the problem?

lol, thanks for trying, didn’t even notice that error. but my return statements are still an issue they won’t return at all. I did however fix the error you recommended .

const buttons = document.querySelectorAll('button');
const resultEl = document.querySelector('#result');

let playerScore = 0;
let computerScore = 0;

const playerScoreEl = document.querySelector('#user-score');
const computerScoreEl = document.querySelector('#computer-score');



buttons.forEach(button => {
    button.addEventListener('click', () => {
      const result = playRound(button.id, computerPlay());
      resultEl.textContexnt = result ;
    });
});

function computerPlay() {
    const options = ['rock', 'paper', 'scissors'];
    const random = Math.floor(Math.random() * options.length);
    return options[random];
} 

function playRound(playerSelection, computerSelection) {
    if (playerSelection === computerSelection) {
        return 'Draw!';
    } else if (
        (playerSelection === 'rock' && computerSelection === 'scissors') ||
        (playerSelection === 'paper' && computerSelection === 'rock') ||
        (playerSelection === 'scissors' && computerSelection === 'paper')
    ) {
        playerScore++;
        playerScoreEl.textContent = playerScore;
        return 'You win!';
    } else {
        computerScore++;
        computerScoreEl.textContent = computerScore;
        return 'You lose!';
    }
}
