Bleep Bleep

Getting error code : SyntaxError: Unexpected token.


var cashRegister = {
    total:0,
    lastTransactionAmount = 0,
    //Dont forget to add your property
    add: function(itemCost) {
        this.total +=  itemCost;
        this.lastTransactionAmount = itemCost;
    },
    scan: function(item,quantity) {
        switch (item) {
        case 'eggs': this.add(0.98 * quantity); break;
        case 'milk': this.add(1.23 * quantity); break;
        case 'magazine': this.add(4.99 * quantity); break;
        case 'chocolate': this.add(0.45 * quantity); break;
        }
        return true;
    },
    //Add the voidLastTransaction Method here
    voidLastTransaction: function() {
        this.total = this.total - this.lastTransactionAmount;
    
};

cashRegister.scan('eggs',1);
cashRegister.scan('milk',1);
cashRegister.scan('magazine',1);
cashRegister.scan('chocolate',4);

//Void the last transaction and then add 3 instead
cashRegister.voidLastTransaction();
cashRegister.scan('chocolate', 3);
//Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total);

I think you're missing a bracket. Check the syntax slowly!

Thanks @root4af. I have added a bracket under : lastTransactionAmount = 0,
This is the only place where i can see that might of been missed. This however has flared up another error message: SyntaxError: Invalid shorthand property initializer.

I'm totally lost....

Oh no, that's not where it was missing! :smile: I'll give you a hint.

All the logic and functions before you start scanning, it all goes inside the cashRegister variable.

Also check these lines, one of them is wrong!

total:0,
lastTransactionAmount = 0,

Thank you for your help, I have managed to find my mistakes :slight_smile:
