If i check my DOM variables indiviually its fine

@khaduch
@mstellaluna - oh, I just figured that you were in the process and didn't do that. Just add a line similar to this in your setGradient function:
option = direction.options[direction.selectedIndex].text; to fetch the direction from the dropdown, because you don't have an event listener for that. Or add an event listener to trigger the function, but you still have to get the new value.
With that line to grab the new value before you set the body style, it will use it when a color change is made.

@khaduch let me try that. Ill get back to you on it. Thanks!

I was out of ideas tbh

@n1zzy

can someone please explain why

truthCheck([{"user": "Tinky-Winky", "sex": "male", "age": 0}, {"user": "Dipsy", "sex": "male", "age": 3}, {"user": "Laa-Laa", "sex": "female", "age": 5}, {"user": "Po", "sex": "female", "age": 4}], "age");

should return false ??!
https://www.freecodecamp.org/challenges/everything-be-true

is it because of the zero? shouldn't a number be negative to be false?
Markus Kiili
@Masd925
@n1zzy Only falsy number is 0.
Well, NaN is falsy also.
n1zzy
@n1zzy
oh ok... makes sense now, was confused 'cuz when I used array.indexOf() would always return -1 when nothing found, but would've made more sense if it returned 0... now I understand why we use array.indexOf() > -1
Ken Haduch
@khaduch
@n1zzy - but if .indexOf() returned 0 then it would indicate that your value was in the first location in the array. -1 isn't an array location.
n1zzy
@n1zzy
@khaduch thats also true :smile:

@khaduch no i am not familiar with looking at the dev tools

@NJM8
I have a question about the front end cert, how do your projects get tested? I see the website makes sure have passed all the algorithm challenges, but does someone actually review your websites and make sure they meet the user stories?
Marc
@MWBauer
Visual studio is the same type of program as Codepen, just offline, right?
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
@MWBauer visual studio is an editor for code - like microsoft word is an editor for documents
Visual studio lives on your computer with all of your code files
Marc
@MWBauer
oy.
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
codepen lives on an internet site with your code files
Marc
@MWBauer
I hate that Codepen doesn't allow me to use local image files.
if it does, I'm doing something wrong.
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
@khaduch had to do other tweaks to get it working and displaying correct but this is the final product gradient generator
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
It's really easy to get started using visual studio on your computer - just down load it and then export your codepen files to your machine.
Are you using pure javascript?
Marc
@MWBauer
I have d/l. I have it open. So just d/l codepen files and start working?
Pure?
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
are you writing just javascript? or es6? or react? or angular?
Marc
@MWBauer
So far as I know I'm not messing with anything else. Just the FCC and I've been walking through Deitel's Javascript for programmers book.
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
@MWBauer codepen doesn't allow you to upload files unless you pay for pro service. BUT you can use a service like postimage.io that's free, you can upload your imgs and it give you the direct HTML link to them

@MWBauer

@mstellaluna
@MWBauer honestly its what I do for codepen, just postimage doesn't upload video files , images only
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
use the export button at the bottom of your codepen to download a zip of your codepen to your machine
it will download a zip of your codepen project and you can unzip it into a local subdirectory
Then you can start visual studio and open the local subdirectory
You will see all of the files for your project - to run it just open index.html in chrome
Marc
@MWBauer
thx @lisacopeland
Lisa Copeland
@lisacopeland
no prob! After you get done editing your files you can try to create a github repo and commit the files!
