Testing Objects for Properties (What am I missing?)

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

// Setup
var myObj = {
  gift: "pony",
  pet: "kitten",
  bed: "sleigh"

function checkObj(checkProp) {
  // Your Code Here
  if (myObj.hasOwnProperty(checkProp) == true) {
    return myObj[checkProp];
  else {    
    return "Not Found"

// Test your code by modifying these values

I have spend a lot of time trying to understand this… and I believe I understand the code but I am also confusing myself. We are using a condition to check if the object has a given property… does (checkProp) mean that we are checking the property of the variable and then if it has it’s own property return true? I kinda get it and kinda don’t - really just confused about (checkProp) party, which I know is the type of function being used

Hey @ColonelForbin,
Your code is perfectly fine and it passes the tests for me.

You are calling the wrong function over here.
See if this helps.

Thank you… that makes more sense now that I am looking at it. checkObj is using the function to check a property of the set of variable… right? Functions have been confusing for me but just gotta do more of them to get it
