Ok, I'm stumped. I've scoured my code and I've searched the forum but can't find the solution please help.

The error I get is, "SyntaxError: Invalid shorthand property initializer"


function StaffMember(name,discountPercent){
    this.name = name;
    this.discountPercent = discountPercent;
};

var sally = new StaffMember("Sally",5);
var bob = new StaffMember("Bob",10);

// Create yourself again as 'me' with a staff discount of 20%
var me = new StaffMember ("Kim" , 20);

var cashRegister = {
    total:0,
    lastTransactionAmount: 0,
    discountPercent = 0,
    
    add: function(itemCost){
        this.total += (itemCost || 0);
        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;
    },
    voidLastTransaction: function(){
        this.total -= this.lastTransactionAmount;
        this.lastTransactionAmount= 0;
    },
    applyStaffDiscount: function(employee){
    this.total -= this.total * (employee.discountPercent / 100);
    }
};

cashRegister.scan('eggs',1);
cashRegister.scan('milk',1);
cashRegister.scan('magazine',3);
// Apply your staff discount by passing the 'me' object 
// to applyStaffDiscount
cashRegister.applyStaffDiscount(me);

// Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total.toFixed(2));

Hi there.

The problem lies within your cashRegister object.

discountPercent = 0,

Replace the equals sign with a colon (like you have for total and lastTransactionAmount) and you'll be good to go.
