Problem with my code on - Profile Lookup exercise

Hello FCC community,

Can somebody help me? I am struggling to figure out why my code is not working. I tried to do partially and It worked when I used console.log, but when change console.log to ‘return’ I feel that the loop stops at the first case.


// 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 (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++){
if (contacts[i].firstName != name){
    return "No such contact";
} else if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop) == false){
    return "No such property";
} else {
    return contacts[i][prop];

// Only change code above this line

console.log(lookUpProfile("Akira", "lastName"));

Hello and welcome to the freeCodeCamp community~!

The return statement ends a function. With the way this is structured, your code will never check more than the first contact. :slight_smile:


Bingo! Hahaha Thank you so much.
