Profile Lookup - Using Map

Tell us what’s happening:
Can anyone review my code. I checked it’s working fine. But the test cases are failed

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 =>{
  if(item.firstName === name){
    if(item.hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        return item[prop]; 
        return "No such property";
    return "No such contact";
// Only change code above this line

// Change these values to test your function
lookUpProfile("Kristian", "lastName");

Link to the challenge:

Two major reason:

1- you are not returning anything from your function, the tests expect some return value.

2 - map is a method made to “update” each entry of an array.
It returns a new array with the new values inside:

const newMappedArray = => updatefn());

So, if you change your code to actually return the new array from map:

lookUpProfile("Kristian", "lastName");
// [ 'No such contact', 'No such contact', 'No such contact', 'Vos' ]

And that’s not the desired output.
So, are you sure map is the best tool for the job? :slight_smile:


Thanks@Marmiz, Now I am clear i am going to continue with filter instead of map :slight_smile:
