Basic Java Script - Profile Lookup Solution

Hey guys,

I’ve got a little problem: i’ve written down a correct solution (when I’m checking it by copying the code to and calling the function via console with the given testcases - everythings fine).

My code so far:

// Setup

var contacts = [


        "firstName": "Akira",

        "lastName": "Laine",

        "number": "0543236543",

        "likes": ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"]



        "firstName": "Harry",

        "lastName": "Potter",

        "number": "0994372684",

        "likes": ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"]



        "firstName": "Sherlock",

        "lastName": "Holmes",

        "number": "0487345643",

        "likes": ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"]



        "firstName": "Kristian",

        "lastName": "Vos",

        "number": "unknown",

        "likes": ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"]



function lookUpProfile(name, prop){

// Only change code below this line

for (i=0;i<contacts.length;i++)


  if (contacts[i]["firstName"]===name)


    if (!contacts[i][prop])

      return "No such Property";


      return contacts[i][prop];



return "No such contact";

// Only change code above this line


lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

sorry guys my mistake - I forgot to declare var “i”.

Everything works fine now.

if you want to have the same behaviour that the freeCodeCamp editor has elsewhere you can add "use strict" (quotes included) as first line of your code
this will enable strict mode, which is active in the fcc editor

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
