Hi everybody,
I have this piece of code which calls the charCounter() function anytime user enters any letter in the input. Its working properly:




Now I am trying to mimc the above code, sending the title and left objects instead:

I have defined the following objects:



I think 'a' and 'b' are correct objects b/c a.value and b.value are the correct values, so I send the 'a' and 'b' objects to charCounter() function and expect the charCounter() function gets called anytime user
enters any letter in the Title or Left fields. Following is how I tried to attach the even listeners to the objects, also call the function.



How can I fix this?

Some correction to the code! I modified the code as following; when the script executes for the first time, it gets inside charCounter() function and does calculate the remaining chars correctly, b/c I get:

TITLE: Auto Body and Paint
16 characters left

But then it does not do anything else as I type in Title field. So can you help me fix this in a way that does NOT go inside charCounter() when the script executes for the first time and instead gets in that function when user enters anything in the field?

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
