Why does it say: Oops, try again. Remember to fade out the current slide and remove the 'active-slide' class?


#1

Here is my code for the section 9. Previous slide 2:

('.arrow-prev').click(function() {
var currentSlide = $('.active-slide');
var prevSlide = currentSlide.prev();

if(prevSlide.length == 0) {
    prevSlide = $('.slide').last();
}

currentSlide.fadeOut(600).removeClass('active-slide');
nextSlide.fadeIn(600).addClass('active-slide');

});

 currentDot.removeClass('active-dot');

nextDot.addClass('active-dot');
});
}

$(document).ready(main);

==================================================

The structure of the =main= function should look like

var main = function() {
     //Begin of =main= FUNCTION-BODY
        $('.dropdown-toggle').click(function(){
              $('.dropdown-menu').toggle();
        });

        $('.arrow-next').click( function() {
             //code which gets executed when =click=ed
        });
        $('.arrow-prev').click( function() {
             //code which gets executed when =click=ed
        });
     //End of =main= FUNCTION-BODY
};

And the =main= function should be executed when the document is fully loaded and READY

$(document).ready( main );

-1
-1a create a selection of nextSlide (2 steps, capture 'active-slide, capture next() slide )'
-1b create a selection of nextDot
-2 check if selection of nextSlide is EMPTY
-2a if EMPTY change nextSlide selection to first slide
-2b and change nextDot selection to first Dot
-3 swap -active-slide- and -active-dot- class from current to next
Step3 is done by

   currentSlide.fadeOut(600).removeClass('active-slide');
   nextSlide.fadeIn(600).addClass('active-slide');
   currentDot.removeClass('active-dot');
   nextDot.addClass('active-dot');
