Tell us what’s happening:
Hey, guys so I’ve been stuck on this challenge for a while now and can’t seem to find out where the mistake in my code is.

I keep receiving these three error messages:

“Kristian”, “lastName” should return “Vos”
“Sherlock”, “likes” should return [“Intriguing Cases”, “Violin”]
“Harry”,“likes” should return an array

Any help would be appreciated

Your 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 (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
    if (name == contacts[i].firstName) {
        if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
            return contacts[i].prop;
        }
        else {
            return "No such property";
        }
    }
    else {
        return "No such contact";
    } 
}
// Only change code above this line
}

// Change these values to test your function
lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

I think that this function can not pass a variable but an established string.

Better access with bracket notation to search by variables.

I was able to find the mistake and the code is working now :+1:t6:
