We made a friend! SyntaxError: Invalid shorthand property initializer


#1

Please help and guide me.

var bob = {
firstName: "Bob",
lastName: "Jones",
phoneNumber: "(650) 777-7777",
email: "bob.jones@example.com"
};

var mary = {
firstName: "Mary",
lastName: "Johnson",
phoneNumber: "(650) 888-8888",
email: "mary.johnson@example.com"
};

var contacts = [bob, mary];

function printPerson(person) {
console.log(person.firstName + " " + person.lastName);
}

function list() {
var contactsLength = contacts.length;
for (var i = 0; i < contactsLength; i++) {
printPerson(contacts[i]);
}
}
var search = function(lastName) {
var contactsLength = contacts.length;
for (var i = 0; i < contactsLength; i++) {
if (contacts[i].lastName === lastName) {
printPerson(contacts[i]);
}
}
};
search("Jones");
var add = function(firstName, lastName, phoneNumber, email) {
contacts[contacts.length] = {
firstName = firstName,
lastName = lastName,
phoneNumber = phoneNumber,
email = email
};
}
add("Daisy", "Dazed", "(650) 999-9999", "dazed.daisy@example.com");
list();

Thank you for your time.

HI in your add function

var add = function(firstName, lastName, phoneNumber, email) {
    contacts[contacts.length] = {
        firstName = firstName,
        lastName = lastName,
        phoneNumber = phoneNumber,
        email = email
    };
}

this part

...
        firstName = firstName,
        lastName = lastName,
        phoneNumber = phoneNumber,
        email = email

...
