Tell us what’s happening:

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");

testing shows this.
// running test
“Kristian”, “lastName” should return “Vos”
“Sherlock”, “likes” should return [“Intriguing Cases”, “Violin”]
“Harry”,“likes” should return an array
// tests completed
why is that? hoping for some guidance here. thanks much!

This is how I was able to make it work. Pay attention to where you place the curly braces…

function lookUpProfile(name, prop){
// Only change code below this line
for (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
if (contacts[i].firstName == name) {
if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
return contacts[i][prop];
} else {
return “No such property”;
}
}
}
return “No such contact”;
// Only change code above this line

thanks for reaching out chesh96… i just fixed it by adding a variable “value” where all results can be stored. thanks
