How to Test Objects for Properties

Tell us what’s happening:
I cannot seem to get it done.

// Setup
var myObj = {
gift: "pony",
pet: "kitten",
bed: "sleigh"

function checkObj(checkProp) {
// Your Code Here
return myObj[checkProp];
else if(myObj.hasOwnProperty(checkProp) !== true){
return "Not Found";
return "Change Me!";

// Test your code by modifying these values

Challenge: Testing Objects for Properties

Link to the challenge:

You changed the function signature:

function checkObj(obj, checkProp) {

Copy-pasting old solutions sometimes results in completely breaking the code.

I’d reset your challenge to restore the correct function signature.

You need to check if obj has the property checkProp. You should not reference the global variable myObj.

Welcome there,

I’ve changed your thread title to describe your problem more clearly. Descriptive titles, such as “Why does my function return undefined?”, are more likely to elicit helpful responses than generic titles, such as “Help please”.

Thanks, could you also close it. I solved my bugs thanks to fcc’s YouTube playlists
