};

function checkObj(obj, checkProp) {
 // Only change code below this line

Challenge: Testing Objects for Properties

Link to the challenge:

Within your function, you shouldn’t know about myObj. Everything your function needs to know about is passed in as a parameter.

The test shown is an example, but other objects and properties will be passed in for testing.

sorry, i translate with google. but don’t understand…

ooowww ok. you mean that the function don’t know the name of the object?
so i just have to pass them like parameter?
is like that?

In your checkObj function, you’re using myObj. Don’t.

Instead, use the obj that gets passed in as a parameter:

checkObj(myObj, "gift");

i change but the web colpse when i do…

function checkObj(obj, checkProp) {
 // Only change code below this line
 if (myObj.hasOwnProperty(checkProp)) {     // you say that i have to change this line?
return myObj[checkProp];
} else {
return "Not Found";
}
// return "Change Me!";
 // Only change code above this line
}
checkObj("gift");

This shouldn’t show up anywhere inside of your code.

These are the two variables you have to work with.


I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

Your english seems fine to me.
