[SOLVED] .health creates an error - Sarven Desert: Fair Battle

Not sure if I’m doing something stupid or if this is a bug, but it’s driving me crazy!

I keep getting an error for using .health on an enemy although I’m told by the level’s instructions to do so.

Here’s my function:

function sumHealth(units) {
    var totalHealth = 0;
    var unitsIndex = 0; 
   
    while(true) {
        var unit = units[unitsIndex];   
        if (unitsIndex <= units.length){
            totalHealth += unit.health; 
        }
            unitsIndex+= 1; 
        }   
        return totalHealth;
    }

Here’s a photo of the error:

hi @Kementari, but you want to add the current unit in the array to the totalHealth right? i’ve also been stuck on this level for a long time but i gave up a bit later.

Oh, oops (lol). What about using a for loop?

yeah i think that’s the most sensible idea

@codewith_haley, do you know for loops?

For loops are something like this:

for ( //code ) {
    // code
}

You could try saying for unit in units

Vaguely - I zoomed through Sarven Desert and was having trouble with Cloudrip Mountain, so I’m working through Sarven Desert more thoroughly.

I’ll try a for loop, but I thinks that’s just a compact version of what i’ve already done.

Can you send me your current code so I can help you debug the code?

Yes. On the forum we do not show good code because other people could use it to cheat at this level.

Noted, this is my first time using the forum and I probably should have been using it early on :sweat_smile:
