I am pretty sure I have this code correct, but I am getting the following error:
Clicking the button element should run the addItem method and increment the state itemCount by 1.
// tests completed

Your code so far


class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = {
      itemCount: 0
    };
    // change code below this line
    this.addItem = this.addItem.bind(this);

    // change code above this line
  }
  addItem() {
    this.setState({
      itemCount: this.state.itemCount + 1
    });
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        { /* change code below this line */ }
        <button onclick={this.addItem}>Click Me</button>
        { /* change code above this line */ }
        <h1>Current Item Count: {this.state.itemCount}</h1>
      </div>
    );
  }
};

You have a slight typo on your event attribute. Unlike normal JavaScript, you must use camelCase for the built-in event attributes when using React.

For example, onsubmit would need to be onSubmit.

Thanks! Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes is all you need!
