Error: It looks like your search function doesn't return contact information for Steve


I can't figure out what is wrong with this code. I've tried to search on community but I couldn't really find an answer. Please can you help?

var friends = {};
friends.bill = {};
friends.steve = {};

var friends = {
bill: {
firstName: "Bill",
lastName: "Gates",
number: "(206) 555-5555",
address: ['One Microsoft Way','Redmond','WA','98052']
steve: {
firstName: "Steve",
lastName: "Jobs",
number: "(206) 555-5500",
address: ['1 Infinite Loop','Cupertino','CA','95014']

var search = function(name) {
for (var iprop in friends){
if(friends[iprop].firstname === name){
return friends[iprop];


Javascript is case sensitive

You didn't capitalize Name in firstName in the if loop of the search function.


But I'm passing the name in search function as "Steve" and not "steve". I tried to covert the case based on your suggestion but it doesn't work.

Any other suggestions please?


No, that's not what I'm referring to...

This property you are referencing in this line:

if(friends[iprop].firstname === name){

it should be firstName, this is because javascript is case sensitive and earlier you entred the propery firstName for your objects.


I need a kick on my back! This is was silly mistake and I spent around 2-3hrs on this one. Many thanks for that.
