Does it have to be a switch statement?


#1



Objects -1.4 "I have to celebrate you baby"


says to add a switch. however the instructions just say no if/else so i was attempting to pull from the phonebook exercise. i didn't remember seeing switch statements before. I simplified the titles and names just to see if i could get the code working at all, and thats why there is no the for the lion king etc.

THX
Is this a Fatboy slim ref...???

movie.toyStory = {
    mName: "ToyStory", 
    review: ["Great story. Mean Prospeector."]};
movie.findingNemo = {
    mName: "FindingNemo",
    review: ["Cool animation, and funny turtles."]};
movie.lionKing = {
    mName: "LionKing",
    review: ["Great songs."]};  

var getReview = function (movie) {
      for(var prop in movie) {
    if(movie[prop].mName === name) {
      console.log(movie[prop]);
}}
};

getReview ("LionKing")

Continuing the discussion from 4. I have to celebrate you baby, help:

@jonasauruz,

the FUNCTION talk

var myFunc = function( param1, param2) {
       //Begin of  anonymous FUNCTION-BODY
       //VARIABLE -myFunc- has an -anonymous function- assigned
       //this -anonymous function- has 2 PARAMETERS param1 and param2
       //param1 and param2 PARAMETERS are used 
       //as -local- VARIABLES throughout the FUNCTION-BODY

      console.log( param1 + " and " + param2 ) ;

      //End of anonymous FUNCTION-BODY
};

If you want to call/execute the anonymous function
you will have to add a pair of parentheses to the variable myFunc
like
myFunc();
As the anonymous function was defined
as having 2 parameters
you have to provide 2 arguments
in our case 2 string VALUES "Alena" and "Lauren"
like
myFunc("Alena","Lauren");

some quotes from the outer-world:

**argument is the value/variable/reference being passed in,
parameter is the receiving variable used within the function/block**

OR

**"parameters" are called "formal parameters",
while "arguments" are called "actual parameters".**

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

function with 1 parameter using return-statement

var myFunction = function( param1 ) {
       //Begin of FUNCTION-BODY
       //myFunction =function= has 1 PARAMETER param1
       //this param1 PARAMETER is used as a -local- VARIABLE
       //throughout the FUNCTION-BODY

      return param1;

      //End of FUNCTION-BODY
      };

you have defined a myFunction function
which takes 1 parameter param1
this param1 parameter is used
as a variable throughout the FUNCTION-BODY.

If you want to call/execute this myFunction function
and this myFunction function was defined
as having 1 parameter param1
you will have to provide 1 argument
in our case a "number VALUE" 4
myFunction( 4 );

some quotes from the outer-world:

**argument is the value/variable/reference being passed in,
parameter is the receiving variable used within the function/block**

OR

**"parameters" are called "formal parameters",
while "arguments" are called "actual parameters".**

============================================

As you are using the return-statement in your myFunction function
you will only get a return-value no-display.
You can however capture this return-value in a variable
and then use the console.log()-method to do a display.

var theResult = myFunction( 4 );
console.log( theResult );

OR directly

console.log( myFunction( 4 ) );

@jonasauruz,
-1
created the base movie object
-2
changed the parameter in the getReview() function

var movie = {};
movie.toyStory = {
    mName: "ToyStory", 
    review: ["Great story. Mean Prospeector."]};
movie.findingNemo = {
    mName: "FindingNemo",
    review: ["Cool animation, and funny turtles."]};
movie.lionKing = {
    mName: "LionKing",
    review: ["Great songs."]};  

var getReview = function (name) {
      for(var prop in movie) {
    if(movie[prop].mName === name) {
      console.log(movie[prop]);
}}
};

getReview ("LionKing")

Thank you for your help. It works beautifully!
