Testing Objects for Properties two ways to get property

#1

Tell us what’s happening:
why it works this way myObj[checkProp] but don’t work like here myObj.checkProp ???

Your code so far

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

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

// Test your code by modifying these values
checkObj("gift");

I think I understood what’s the matter, we can pass to function strings like “aaaa” and like “aaaaa aaaaa”, and this way myObj.checkProp can’t handle both of strings.


#3

myObj.checkProp looks for a property with the name “checkProp”. It is the same as myObj["checkProp"].
