    For now, goodnight!

    Okay!
    You're pretty close with what you said you had, actually.
    It's all the right stuff, just in the wrong order.
    Hope that's enough of a hint... haha

    Hey @xdothackerx , I'm working away on my sorting assignment and running into some conceptual questions. Are you around?
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    Sure @rkudrna, what's the problem? :)
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    I'm thinking about how to execute my sort. I'm going to update my github with my code so we can look at the same thing
    I can also share snippets along the way if that's simpler. :)
    I'm making a <ul> of objects using jQuery as soon as my page loads. I used a constructor to make a bunch of Fruits
    Now that I have my Fruits I want to sort them. I want to have two buttons on the page. One that will sort them by calories, one that will sort them by gLoad.
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    ...
    so, here's where I get confused
    I need to make an array of Fruits
    I can do that by passing my variable names into an array, but that doesn't seem to be an interaction with the DOM. Right?
    I'm thinking there's a way to query for all <li>s, but will they maintain their status as objects with properties I can sort them by?

    @xdothackerx
    Uhhh give me a minute to download all your stuff and take a look. XD
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    sure thing. :) Let me know when you've had a chance to take a peek.
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    Is there a reason why you want to query the DOM for the fruit objects instead of just adding them to an array when they're instantiated?
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    I'm thinking of adding an animation of the sorting. Can I do that when I'm just adding them to the array in the js file?
    (it's entirely possible that I'm overthinking how this ought to work)
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    It'd probably be easier to add them to an array when they're instantiated, then have animations during each of the two sort functions.
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    ah, okay
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    So you'd have the original array of all your fruits, then you'd iterate through each one to sort it by the desired property. During that iteration is when you'd animate the fruit moving from one order to the other, kind of like how Brook did the sort algorithm thingie in class.
    Does that make sense? XD
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    Yes, in theory. :) I'll look at his code again and see if I can adapt it to my project.
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    Okie doke! Let me know if you have any more questions.
    Rachel Kudrna
    @rkudrna
    Seems like it'll be much simpler to do that than what I was thinking....
    thanks!
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    No prob!

    eek!
    I'm finishing the prework tonight/next few days
    will it still get graded?
    :D
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    Yup, I'll be grading until October 15th. :)

    I will be taking advantage of that ^
    I am working on making a program to sort an un ordered list into an array, then into a complete binary tree, then search for an element (all animated).. and it's not really working right now
