Profile Lookup - no such contact

Tell us what’s happening:

The only thing I don’t get is why the return statement for no such contact is outside of the function body. Every time I returned it inside of the function my results wouldn’t be correct… What am i missing?

Your code so far

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++) {
//check if name is a firstName and the prop is a property of that contact
//if both are true, return the value of that property
    if (name === contacts[i]['firstName']) {
        if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
            return contacts[i][prop];
        } else {
            return 'No such property';
    //if name does not correspond to any contact, return "No such contact"
return 'No such contact'

//if prop doesnt correspond to any properties found to match name, then return "No such property." 


// Change these values to test your function
console.log(lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes"));
console.log(lookUpProfile("Tyler", "likes"));
console.log(lookUpProfile("Harry", "lastName"));
console.log(lookUpProfile("Kristian", "plays"));

nevermind I figured it out :rofl:

it’s still inside of the function body, just not in the for loop
