I am working on Trailhead module "Build the AccountList Component" https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/projects/slds-lightning-components-workshop/steps/slds-lc-4

When I click on Delete button, it is not showing alert(confirmation) message.

Below is the code - Lightning component-

<form class="account-form" onsubmit="{!c.deleteAccount}">
              <input type="hidden" value="{!account.Name}" class="account-name" />
                Use a Lightning Base Component
                To display an icon next to the label
              <lightning:button label="Delete"

Controller.js code

  doInit: function(component, event, helper) {      
    // Fetch the account list from the Apex controller   
  deleteAccount: function(component, event, helper) {
    // Prevent the form from getting submitted
    // Get the value from the field that's in the form
    var accountName = event.target.getElementsByClassName('account-name')[0].value;
    confirm('Delete the ' + accountName + ' account? (don’t worry, this won’t actually work!)');

    Can you be more specific? What do you mean "nothing is happening"? Also, this code is specifically designed not to delete records. – sfdcfox Apr 4 '18 at 11:43
  • On click of button, it should show an alert.. but it's not – Rohit Patil Apr 4 '18 at 11:51

There is slight mistake in the code sample in Trailhead module. I had to add new attribute type="submit" in lightning button as shown below to make it work-

<lightning:button label="Delete"
