x.textContent error

I have a js file and I'm playing around with object literals but it's not working.

Any ideas why?

Thanks!

From the information you provide, I think it is because x element  has error. If you can provide more x element information, it will assist to solve your issue.

The file was attached but here you go....

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
	<title></title>
	
	<script type="text/JavaScript">
		var hotel = {
			name: 'Sunset',
			rooms: 65,
			Booked: 15,
			checkAvailability: function() {
				return this.rooms - this.Booked;
			}
		};
		
		var elName = document.getElementById('hName');
		elName.textContent = hotel.name;
		
		var rmLeft = document.getElementById('hRoomLeft');
		rmLeft.textContent = hotel.checkAvailability();		
	</script>

</head>

<body>
	<table>
		<tr>
			<td>Hotel Availability</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>Hotel: </td>
			<td><div id="hName"></div></td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>Rooms Left: </td>
			<td><div id="hRoomLeft"></div></td>

it is because the html page is not loaded completely before javascript running,

 please try this by adding init() function with onload in body tag

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
	<title></title>
	
	<script type="text/JavaScript">
	function init(){
		var hotel = {
			name: 'Sunset',
			rooms: 65,
			Booked: 15,
			checkAvailability: function() {
				return this.rooms - this.Booked;
			}
		};
		
		var elName = document.getElementById('hName');
		elName.textContent = hotel.name;
		
		var rmLeft = document.getElementById('hRoomLeft');
		rmLeft.textContent = hotel.checkAvailability();	
}		
	</script>

</head>

<body onload="javascipt:init();">
	<table>
		<tr>
			<td>Hotel Availability</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>Hotel: </td>
			<td><div id="hName"></div></td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>Rooms Left: </td>
			<td><div id="hRoomLeft"></div></td>
		</tr>				
	</table>

Or you try this , change script location
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
	<title></title>


</head>

<body>
	<table>
		<tr>
			<td>Hotel Availability</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>Hotel: </td>
			<td><div id="hName"></div></td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td>Rooms Left: </td>
			<td><div id="hRoomLeft"></div></td>
		</tr>				
	</table>
		<script type="text/JavaScript">
		var hotel = {
			name: 'Sunset',
			rooms: 65,
			Booked: 15,
			checkAvailability: function() {
				return this.rooms - this.Booked;
			}
		};
		
		var elName = document.getElementById('hName');
		elName.textContent = hotel.name;
		
		var rmLeft = document.getElementById('hRoomLeft');
		rmLeft.textContent = hotel.checkAvailability();		
	</script>
</body>
